Family Information

I was born and raised in the Wichita area and have 3 siblings: an older brother, a younger brother, and my twin sister. It has been a fun experience being a twin as I have always found that I had someone to count on, someone to share everything with, and someone I could always trust. My twin sister has been a big part of my success today.

My Top 5 Strengths

Achiever – This is my drive to go over and beyond in everything I do; everything I say; and everything I become.

Activator – I tend to be viewed as ‘impatient’ but my ‘activator’ says “Why wait, let’s get started!” I can easily turn my ideas into action.

Empathy – I love this strength because when I was a child, I often believed I was just too ‘soft’, but as I better understood my strengths, I realized I have the ability to understand very easily others’ feelings and emotions. This has led to my God-given strength of becoming an encourager.

Individualization – I tend to look at the differences in others rather than similarities. I embrace the freedom of being exactly who God created each person to be, and that we are each uniquely designed the way he wanted us to be.

Significance – This is my burning desire within to impact the world in a positive way.
