DO YOU HAVE ANY CHILDREN? - Yes. My son, Caleb is a teenager. I have a hard time keeping up with him sometimes but I love being with him.
PERSON YOU ADMIRE? WHY? My dad, Arden Wilkinson he worked in the restaurant industry all my life. He retired from Mazzio's Pizza after 30 years and then managed several restaurants here in Owasso; Goldie’s, Depot Steakhouse, Daylight Donuts, Rib Crib. Everyone in this town knows him he was good at what he did. He is currently retired but is the Commander for the Owasso VFW Post 7180 and man does he ever stay busy with that!
YOUR FIRST JOB? - Started working for Mazzio’s here in Owasso when I was 16, I worked there 7 years. Funny, I have pictures of me playing in the construction dirty when the store was being built.
LEAST FAVORITE JOB? - I worked at a local bank for a short time, it just wasn’t for me! I was awful at balancing the teller drawer, but I built some great friendships I still have today.

FAVORITE FOOD? - Mexican, Italian, Chinese.
FAVORITE OWASSO RESTAURANT? - You know my favorites changes but I have my local go to places… Los Cabos is my favorite followed by El Tequila. Season’s Express is my favorite Chinese, I think my son could eat here everyday and never get tired of it. My favorite Italian place is Mondo's this is my date night go to with my son. Mondo's is located on Brookside in Tulsa not Owasso but it is well worth the drive. I like Bricktown for good American food. I have been cooking a lot lately, so eating out has not been a top priority.
FAVORITE MOVIE? - Thomas Crown Affair and Pretty Woman. I am really a chick flick kind of girl.
FAVORITE TV SHOW? - Not really into TV... When I do watch I sadly admit I watch HGTV mainly. Granted I have found that the Smithsonian Channel has some great shows that I have very much enjoyed watching. I would rather be going and doing than watching TV. With all the negativity on TV nowadays, I just stopped watching it. I don’t enjoy all the doom and gloom. I don’t think any of us should have to have that in our lives.
IF YOU WEREN'T A REALTOR YOU'D BE A ____________? - I have no idea! I HATE working in an office and being trapped at a desk. I am good at training people and I truly enjoy that. I loved working in a restaurant and being around the people. Whatever it would be, I would have to be around people all the time and not at a desk. I think a lot of that comes from my dad.
SOMETHING ABOUT YOU YOU'D LIKE US TO KNOW - I enjoy going to the gym to burning off stress and staying fit. I love being out and about, going and doing. I really enjoy going to the Tulsa PAC and watching musicals with my son. I enjoy doing craft projects and painting on canvas and ceramics. I love listening to live music, watching MMA fights, fishing, hiking, kayaking and paddle boarding. I love to travel and see new places. Love spending time with family and friends and being outdoors.
FAVORITE QUOTE? - I love word art and quotes… I have a whole wall of them in my house but this one has always stuck with me. Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than the ones you did do. Explore. Dream. Discover”.
