Tell us about yourself and your shop.
I reside in Springfield, Illinois where I grew up. Today I am retired, married and a grandmother. I love color and my shop presents it in the things I made whether it is jewelry or knitting items. I have been knitting since I was a little girl and jewelry came along around the time I set up my Etsy shop back in 2012. At that time I was doing Kumihimo, we have now gone to other things which are of more interest.
What is your favorite leadership quote?
“Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.”
What leader in your life has most influenced you?
My leader/leaders that have most influenced me would be my parents. They always emphasized to get out and work hard and to do your very best and that is what I try to do, my very best. And if I didn’t get it I would have to figure it out.
What is your greatest leadership skill and how did you attain it?
Well, I have been on Boards before as a Secretary taking notes. It is a great skill to pay close attention and catch everything they are saying and come back next week and read the minutes. I was told I took excellent minutes. So I guess that would be my skill.
What leadership skill do you want to achieve and how will you attain it?
On this team it would have to be the Blog as I am very unfamiliar with a Blog. That would be the leadership skill I would have the most challenge with, I believe.
What are your social media sites?
