4. Describe Your Off Camera Personality
I would describe myself as an introverted extrovert. I love being alone just as much as I enjoy being around others. One of my favorite things to do is be alone with my thoughts. In real life, I am more quiet and shy but can be the life of the party if I feel comfortable. In mortuary school, must to my surprise I won the superlative for best personality.

*** Bonus Question*** What Would You Be Doing If You We'rent A Funeral Director?
I am an entrepreneur. I currently own and operate three businesses. I am an independent insurance agent and have a funeral service, which is both closely tied. I also have a company called Spirit Candy, where I make and distribute homemade healing bath salts, shea butters, and sugar scrubs.
