My motto is, If you don't try, you won't know. I admire my clients' creativity and courage to put it all on the line in pursuit of their passion/dreams. The best thing about Ward and Smith is its culture, which is rooted in exceptional client service and teamwork.
One surprising thing people don't know about me is I was an alligator hunter in Florida for a brief period of time. I was also a high school Biology teacher.
I would love to live on a boat, because I love fishing and the ocean and living on a boat would allow me to always be close to the ocean and the ability to fish as much as I want.
Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are my favorite fictional characters. They were always up for a good adventure and just knew how to have fun!
