What is one of your favorite quotes?
The best part of waking up?
"People are unrealistic, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives: Be kind anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous of you: Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten by tomorrow: Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: Give your best anyway."
- Mother Teresa
If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
I chose wisely. For decades, Jeri Logemann was my mentor and friend. She encouraged me in everything I did, every place I worked. She was proficient in much more than swallowing disorders. She was skilled in all areas of speech-language pathology and a model for female professionals. She had passion for our profession and passed on her spirit – never give up. I miss her every day.
My first cup of coffee!
