“I listen and try to understand the root problem before I set out to solve it.”
I keep it all organized – from projects, to schedules, to communication, to interns. You need it organized, I’ll get it there.
Baking! Which, technically, I do get paid for from time to time. I love being crafty, and during this stage of life, my crafty-ness has shown up in the form of cakes. I began decorating cakes before my husband and I started our family so I could “practice” for our future kids’ cakes, which turned into a little side business over the years.
On the other side of the spectrum, I also love volunteering, especially working with families who have a child staying in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit).
That it’s “administrative work”. It’s actually more like strategic work. I look at the number of hours in the week, the work that needs to get done, and what and who it will take to do it well. Then I find smart ways to do it even better.
Have faith and surrender. It’s OK not to have control of all the things at all times.
I volunteer at our church a couple times a month and lead our small group. I also grab any chance I get to volunteer at Riley Hospital for Children. They hold a special place in my heart.
Relaxing with family and friends.
