Something unique: I am a Guinness World Record holder of 22 years for the longest musical march (52.4 miles). Yes, that's nearly two marathons of walking and playing an instrument non-stop for nearly 20 hours. We (our high school band) still hold the record.
If you could go on a journey anywhere, where would you go?: I'd love to visit each continent in my lifetime (minus Antarctica).
Favorite Quotes, Saying, or Bible verse: One of my all-time favorite Bible chapters is Psalm 34, but specifically verses 4-8 (NLT), "I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; he saved me from all my troubles. For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!"
What do you enjoy about your job?: While I've only been working with Journey Websites since the end of January, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this team. We have fun and send lots of emojis or bitmojis, which makes my heart happy. Angela and her team care about me, and what's going on in my life. We're all in this together.
Something unique: My motivation is my family and I want to give them the best of the world. I spend less on myself and that's how I have been since childhood.
If you could go on a journey anywhere, where would you go?: I'd take a road trip to the countries of Scandinavia - Iceland, Norway, Finland - and explore these beautiful places at a slow, comfortable pace.
Favorite Quotes, Saying, or Bible verse: "Live and let others live. Harm no one. Each and every creature wants to live and it makes me inhumane if I exploit them."
What do you enjoy about your job?: The friendly environment - it feels like home when working on projects. I especially enjoy Angela's nature, which makes me feel as if I've already known her for many years. I also enjoy working because I get a chance to challenge myself with a variety of client requirements. That's fun and growth! 🙂

Favorite Quotes, Saying, or Bible verse: "Don’t ever let someone convince you that cooking a meal for your kids— or anyone else for that matter— is one more thing to check off the to-do list. Every time you feed someone, you’re offering love, security, comfort, therapy, and memories shrouded in happiness and warmth. It’s no small thing." ~ Bon Appétit Editors Jenny Rosenstratch and Andy Ward
What do you enjoy about your job?: I enjoy getting to work with smaller businesses. For each of them, their website can be a huge step forward for their businesses, as well as a very personally meaningful step.
