What inspired you to pursue a career in this field?
I am an accidental entrepreneur with a gift of service and love of community. I am blessed; my family loves the Tri-Cities, and they taught me the importance of being involved and making a positive impact through business and volunteerism. Shortly after I married my husband, we started talking about how we could—together—make a positive impact in the community like my grandparents and parents did. We started our project management business to help other companies accomplish their goals by applying our fresh perspective and offering honest, innovative, expert advice to solve their challenges.

How do you spend your free time?
