1. Where did you grow up?

Chattanooga, Tennessee.

2. What is your favorite Bible verse, book or story? Why?

It’s always changing but for now, I really like the story of Joseph taken from Genesis 50.

Joseph sees the larger picture of what God is doing in his life saying to his brothers who have wronged him, “You meant it for harm, but God meant it for good.”

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

“The Blind Side.”

It’s a redemptive story of what we can accomplish if we just open our eyes to the unexpected.

4. Who are three of the people you admire?

Diane Sawyer, Barbara Brown Taylor and Kristina Everingham (my dearest friend who is a trailblazer in women’s business).

5. What is one little known fact about yourself?

I can’t ride a bicycle.
