Meet Our Featured OWNers
"I am a lover of LIFE! I believe that you should make your life the coolest experience possible! I am a wife and the mother of three fab kids! I work full-time at a college. However, my passion exists in what I do outside of my full-time position.
"I have a degree in marketing and am a certified art director, and my dream job is to work in media. I want to be the source that people know and trust (like a female Clark Howard). Although I am considered media with my site, I want to do it full-time."
What are your three favorite things?
My hubby and children, french fries and staying fit!
What would your superpower be?
I would love to have the power to become INVISIBLE.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check on my youngest child (his crib is next to my bed).
What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?
The last things I do before I go to bed are check on my youngest child and thank God for making it back to my bed safe and sound.
What is your favorite OWN show?
My favorite Own TV shows are "Super Soul Sunday" and Oprah Prime. I love anything Oprah does when she is interviewing someone. In a conversational tone, she asks the questions I always want to know the answers to!
What is the one item you can't live without, and why?
I would say Google. I Google something at least a few times a day. I love learning or just knowing something rather quickly. If I don't know the answer or am not sure, to Google I go. In addition to Google, I would say the Internet, period. It connects us as a world more than ever before. Also, I read a lot, and there are a lot of helpful articles online when you can't get to a book.
Who is your hero?
My hero is my grandmother! She is still alive, but I am who I am because of her LOVE and all the actions that come with the word.
What do you like that most people dislike?
Being alone! I have no problem doing things (shopping) or going places (to movies, out to eat) by myself. I have three kids and a husband! I have co-workers! I have great girlfriends! I have a slew of social media friends! A girl needs and craves alone time, and that's okay. I look forward to it.
What are you proudest of?
I am proud that I am first to finish college among my parents and grandparents. I am proud that I married a wonderful man who shows me he loves me daily and is a great father to our children. I am proud of myself for actually being a good mom and being consistently able to do what it takes to provide and take care of my children. I am proud of myself because I have never stopped dreaming. Everything I want hasn't manifested itself, but I continue to work toward it. I am proud of that because it's easy to give up and become complacent. I haven't done that. I pray I never do.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
In the last few years, I have really started to dislike people chewing in front of me. I am not sure, but I can't stand to hear people chew food, slurp their soup or bite ice!
What would you like to learn to do?
I would like to learn the production side of media. What does a producer actually do? Where do I go to learn this?
What are you particularly bad at that your friends tease you about?
Cursing. LOL. My friends tell me not to do it because I sound crazy! So I don't.
