What kind of leader am I? I always want to see people succeed by realizing their full potential. Many people are capable of and have the capacity to do incredible things however they are fearful of stepping out into the unknown and trusting themselves to find the right footing. Leadership for me is allowing someone else achieve more than I have because I have given them the tools to do more than I was able to. Leadership is about setting an example that with all the twists and turns I can step out and be excellent even in the face of challenges. .”
Loves to…(in no particular order) Dance and sing with my husband and our kids, game drives – even if we repeat the same destination: we love nature and nature loves us, sprinting, watching action movies with my husband, watching Disney movies with our kids whilst eating sushi and seafood, teasing and joking around with each other and having a good laugh that comes from the belly accompanied by tears.
Quotes I live by…
