How long have you been a GLI Ambassador? Since the start of the year.

What is your favorite part about being a GLI Ambassador? I really enjoy celebrating the opening of new businesses. Opening a new business, especially in 2020, is an enormous challenge and requires a great deal of discipline, dedication and passion. Meeting these business owners and listening to their stories have been such a great source of inspiration and encouragement.

A fun fact about me is… One time I was a nanny for a family of five!

What is the best career advice you’ve received? Don’t take things personally.

What does being a GLI investor mean to you? Being a GLI Investor means the chance to invest back into the community in the same way the community invested in us and in our business.

What is your favorite thing to do in Louisville? EAT. There are so many great restaurants in Louisville, and new ones are opening up every day. I look forward to trying each one at least once!

What do you do to make greater Louisville GREATER? Supporting and investing locally. I try to frequent our local businesses more now than I normally would have in the past.
