Tell me about yourself! 

I grew up in Memphis, TN. However, I have now lived in Texas more than anywhere else in my life. 

I love to travel and experience new cultures trying all the new foods and seeing all the different sights. 

My passion for learning leads me to teach others around me, including the 2 to 3 year-olds at my church. 

Enjoying an ice cream cone on a cobblestone street in the fall is my idea of a perfect day. 

What’s the most unique part about working here?

The most unique part of working at Elite is having the opportunity to be a part of the legal process even though most of us don’t have to actually step foot into a court room.

What have been your biggest accomplishments at Elite?

I created a successful scheduling system, calendar planning, and organization for accounting and process service. 

Sometimes people see administrative duties as an “in the box” position. However, it is far from a rigid square. I enjoy thinking outside of the box and using critical thinking when it comes to my position. Executing each task gracefully while being creative at Elite is an accomplishment.

What skill do you think everyone should learn, and why?

Critical thinking is a vital skill in the work place. With constant innovation and change finding more efficient pathways can save time and energy.

Who are some of your biggest inspirations within the company?

Bobbi Moore, our Chief Financial Officer. She truly inspires me daily with her professionalism in business and her passion to see Elite be the best.

What are three things on your bucket list?

I have always wanted to bungee jump off a bridge, swing on a high rope in a beautiful scenic area, fill my passport book completely, and see the northern lights.

What’s your favorite sports team?

I usually do not follow sports, but I do enjoy watching my nieces and nephews play football, soccer, and cheer for their local teams. Go Bulldogs!

What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done?

I would consider the most adventurous thing I’ve done was live in India for a month. I experienced the culture, made great friends, enjoyed beautiful food, and found my passion for teaching children.

What was the best concert you ever attended?

Cory Asbury’s acoustic set at the SAGU campus in Waxahachie, TX.

Any advice you would give to yourself back when you were 21?

I would encourage myself to not settle for anything and take the big steps to go for the very best in life. Your beginning is not your end. Take more pictures!
