What do you consider your greatest achievement?

give256 is Huntsville’s first giving circle and probably what I’d consider my greatest achievement to date. My sister and I started give256 almost five years ago, and through the support of the community and members we have been able to give out over $45,000 in grants since we started. The nonprofit is something I take great pride in, and I look forward to seeing it grow in the future.

What’s your all-time favorite Halloween costume?

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! I enjoy any excuse for a themed party, and Halloween definitely falls in that category. It’s hard to pick a favorite costume, but I think the year my friends and I went as Party Animals might win out. It was such a simple idea that allowed everyone to put their own spin on it. Everyone got to dress in fancy formal attire but have the fun make-up and accessories of an animal of their choosing. We had everything from deer, to cats, and a wolf – I went as a raccoon, and the make-up lasted for days!

What do enjoy doing when you’re not working?

Live music of any kind. I’d happily travel any night of the week to see a fun concert. Pre-pandemic there were many nights that I spent driving back and forth from Birmingham or Nashville with friends. Now that the Orion Amphitheatre has opened, I’ve been a frequent visitor and could not be happier! I get to enjoy all the benefits of an exciting music scene without the tiresome hour and a half plus drive home for work early the next day. This summer is packed full of concerts, and I cannot wait!
