Outside of her career, her proudest accomplishment has been balancing being a single parent with a career. She is also very proud of her son, who played football at Marian University, and is now coaching football there. More than anything, she wants to be remembered as a happy person with a good work ethic, as well as for her family and son, who hold a special place in her heart.
