What have you learned about yourself since turning 40?
It wasn’t until I lost some jobs that I realized my career didn’t define me. That period of growth was a valuable life lesson and I’m grateful for the transition.
How do you stay fit and healthy?
I took fitness to the next level in 2015 when, at a party, I met certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist Scott Cameron of Buckhead Elite Training Studio. Scott spoke about Cryo Elite Therapy. I soon tried it and then made the best decision of my life—to improve my God-given body. I’ve now learned to be truly healthy. I also get a spiritual boost from Pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Ministries and the devotionals of Bob Gass. Also, I look to the experts of Buckhead Wellness Center, Noveau Face and Body Clinic and Esthetic Dental Solutions Spa.
What is your favorite way to give back to your community?
My career gives me the opportunity to do a tremendous amount of charity work. I am so proud of the team effort during my time at Star 94 FM, raising funds for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. In 2012, I took my first mission trip with SERV International, first to the Dominican Republic and later to Africa at their House of Hope orphanage. I literally cried at every turn, overwhelmed with joy and a supernatural peace. I returned two years later, deepening my involvement and experiencing real change in action.
Do you have advice for those not yet 40?
Be humble. Be filled with love and gratitude— those are two of the most powerful words in the English language. Always keep learning and growing.
