On a personal note: I have been blessed with numerous abilities, and the energy to contribute to many projects. Beyond my commitment to my family, my work, and my community, is the continued need to be creative – from developing new displays for the Calgary Stampede, to special event clothes designing, to hosting the latest family party.
Favorite Motto: “I do not believe in miracles, I rely on them.”
