People's Choice Award

1.Tell us why anyone would want come to your hometown?
I’m so grateful for my solid educational background. My dad was actually my elementary school principal, and my mom was my high school guidance counselor. They made education a priority, and I developed a lifelong love of learning. Being curious and open to new ideas and knowledge led me to combine my finance degree with an esthetic license and start a business as the owner of the first mobile beauty spa in Ohio.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your closet and why?
I wish I could slow down time. But what I can realistically do is make sure my family has the best chance of living long lives by taking care of our health. It’s why I’m so passionate about bringing visibility to cardiovascular disease. My husband and I have both undergone preventative heart health screenings, and we know our risk factors. We’re protecting our hearts so we can have many more happy, healthy years together.

3.What do you love to cook and why?
I’m never happier than when I’m surrounded by family. My husband, parents, and sister are my best friends and we have the funniest group text messages. I have six beautiful nieces, and being their Auntie is one of the greatest joys in my life. Mike’s sister and her family are in England, so we keep in touch via Facetime and visit as often as possible. Nothing feels better than being with people who love you.

4.If you had an extra hour each day, what would you do?
During the 2008 recession, I lost my job as a junior executive at Victoria’s Secret after 15 years at the corporate office. I was devastated, but took a hard look at my career and realized I wasn’t doing work that lit a fire in me. Making other women feel beautiful from the inside out is what I’m passionate about, and today I own an esthetic spa business and have a new, fulfilling career!

5.Describe the dirtiest job you have ever had to do?
I love the sound of our hobby farm as it wakes up every morning. I don’t need an alarm clock, because my tiny bantam rooster, Boom, has a not-so-tiny cock-a-doodle-do. Soon after that, my horses will start nickering that it’s breakfast time. We moved to the country 10 years ago with a dream of living a rural life, and it’s felt…and sounded…like heaven ever since.
