What is your job, and what does a typical day look like?

I am the bookkeeper at our family business (Weinhagen Tires). I share an office with my husband, Christian. I enjoy the quiet time working on my computer; it's the perfect getaway for a busy mom!

As an Ambassador...

What was it about being Captain that appealed to you?

I have volunteered with the AAO for a few years now. There are so many amazing people within this organization. I was honored to be asked to be part of the first ever all female team.

What has been most memorable so far in your year?

The PEOPLE! I have already met the most amazing people - starting with my team! I also love meeting new ambassadors and seeing friends at each event. It's amazing to see the difference in an ambassador from the beginning of their year to the end - to be even one small part of that transition is so rewarding!

What are you excited about?

I'm super excited to travel to Canada for Festival De Voyager soon - it's their 50th anniversary! He ho!
