Posted by LaTreekaW on 09/08/2020 4:29 pm  

How many years have you been a member of AGA? I’ve been a member of Montgomery AGA since 2001 or 2002. During the last semester of my senior year at “THE Alabama State University”, I was awarded a much needed AGA scholarship. I was so appreciative that I made it a career goal to become a member & give back, as soon as possible!

Current employer and position? Employer: Alabama Medicaid Agency Position: Associate Director of Provider Audit/Nursing Home Audit

Tell us three things most people don’t know about you: In spite of my manicured nails & love for “girly” accessories, I’m a life-long tomboy. I’d choose ripped jeans & sneakers over a dress, ANY day! I enjoy riding motorcycles. I currently ride a Suzuki GSXR-600. That’s a “street bike”, not a “cruiser”! Once you get over the “safety” fear, riding is actually extremely therapeutic. Before and after becoming a mother, I enjoyed playing softball for years. When my daughter was old enough to play, I stopped playing & began coaching her little league teams. She “retired” just before starting high school. However, I’m contemplating coming out of “softball retirement” and playing on a co-ed team! Just keep the Bengay on deck!!

What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love? My favorite tv show is Showtime’s “Shameless”. Every episode is more unbelievable than the last, but it’s definitely NOT A KID-FRIENDY SHOW!! If you’ve never watched it, it’s a binge-worthy MUST SEE!!

If you had a warning label, what would yours say? Unfortunately, I do have a “disclaimer” of sorts. It’s “Don’t let the glasses & suit fool you!” Some people perceive me as “uptight” or extremely “straight laced”. Yes, I am a rule follower by nature. However, everyone has layers. When it’s time to be a professional, I’m all about business. But, I do have a sense of humor, & I enjoy “letting my hair down”. Just ask anyone who has taken the time to REALLY get to know me!

What three items would you take with you on a deserted island? My motorcycle (OF COURSE!),a stack of good books, and an ample supply of Tacky Jacks’ Bushwhackers

What is your favorite thing to do in the River Region? I enjoy visiting different restaurants with friends & family.

What’s something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before? I’d like to take a LONG distance motorcycle ride to Florida, Georgia, or even Texas!

Seen anything lately that made you smile? I saw my daughter lounging in her new fully decorated dorm room at Jacksonville State University. She was excited, and I was too! #EMPTYNEST!!!!

Tell us three things most people don’t know about you: 1. I like to do artsy things, like paint. Anything that involves glitter and a glue gun gets me excited! 2. I have two brothers and we all have degrees in accounting. 3. I can play the piano and a few chords on the guitar.

What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love? I am not ashamed of it, but it would probably surprise people that I loved watching Rob and Big. I own the seasons if anyone wants to borrow them.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say? There was a little girl, who had a little curl Right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very, very good, But, when she was bad, she was horrid.

What three items would you take with you on a deserted island? I would take a Kindle, sunscreen, and my pillow.

What is your favorite thing to do in the River Region? I really like to take my dog, Pete, out to socialize him. He is super cute, so we get lots of attention!

What’s something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before? Row 200 meters at the gym in under 30 seconds.

Seen anything lately that made you smile? Getting Pete back after being away for a week. He can always make me smile!
