IN HER OWN WORDS:
“A long time ago, I read a quote: ‘Be the person you needed when you were younger.’ I was blessed with some exceptional high school teachers and college professors who helped me not only to become the person I am today, but who also supported and cared for me. I always wanted to pay it forward.”
“My favorite saint is St. Francis of Assisi. He was Italian (just like me) and he is the patron saint of animals.I am an animal lover! I have visited Assisi, Italy three times, and I was fascinated by his life. I also love this quote attributed to him: ‘Start by doing what is necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.’”
