Why did you begin martial arts training? Why do you continue to train?

I can’t exactly answer what made me say “yes” one day as opposed to the dozens of times I had said “no” before other than it was exactly the right time, and it was something I was meant to do. I continue to train because Tae Kwon Do is the first thing in my life that I have stuck with when I was not automatically good at it.  Usually, if I could not master an activity and “win” pretty quickly, I moved on to the next activity.


What is your favorite phrase that you hear Master Butler use? Why?

“Ichi-go Ichi-e” – appreciate the nature and essence of every moment, as they will never happen the same way again. Too often we all get caught up in wanting to do over/do better/do again when what we should really do is be the best version of ourselves at that moment, and be content that we did our best at that time…then move on with confidence to the next moment, and do it all again!


What is a quote that inspires you?

I have two favorite quotes by actress Audrey Hepburn:

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’M POSSIBLE.”

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Never throw out anyone.”

Where is your favorite place to visit on a vacation?

Beaches, almost anywhere!


Who is your favorite superhero?

Black Widow – a strong female character who worked hard on her personal redemption.
