Tell us something most people don’t know about you?  I met my husband when I ran an ad to sell my truck.  I still have him and that old truck.  

One piece of advice you would like to share with exhibitors who are just getting started?  Take every opportunity to learn.  You can learn from anyone.  Build your own program taking pieces from things that you see working for other people.  Keep growing your skill set.  

If there is anything else you would like to share, please tell us! I am finding it really exciting to see so many new people at our shows here recently.  I have several new and novice kids with me currently.  It kind of feels like a revival.  It’s been some time since we’ve had such a influx of new blood.  Let’s make them feel welcome and help them along their way.
