What does being a mom mean to you or what has it taught you?
"Being a mom means the world to me and has taught me a lot about selflessness and putting others first. It gave me a whole new concept of true love. Having a family is the greatest thing ever and children are definitely a true gift from God."
Is it hard being on the road a lot as a mom? Does your family travel with you a lot?
"Being on the road a lot has been very difficult and my children have not gotten to go with me other than when they were very small so that makes it a hard decision on where to go and when to go as I don’t want to miss too many of my kids’ activities."
What lessons or wisdom do you want to pass down to your children?
"My biggest words of wisdom I tell my kids are to work hard, believe in yourself and do whatever you want to do; live out your dreams and have no regrets. Life will take you in funny directions but always make the best of it."
What is your favorite way to spend time with your kid(s)?
"My favorite way to spend time with my kids is to follow their endeavors, whether that be high school sports, rodeo or spend time at the lake with my entire family."
