What word or phrase best describes you?
The word or phrase that best describes me…Uninhibited.  When I was 10, I was at this church event and the older girls had to tell us what word they think describes us.  My card said “uninhibited. You are unafraid of people or things”.  I think that was the biggest compliment I have received in my life.  I have never forgotten that and I continue to live by it.  Life is too short to be miserable or hold things in!

What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is…Shia LeBeouf.  I feel like it is time for me to come out with that.  I have been holding it in for years, and now that it is on the internet, it is officially official.  Also Fall Out Boy, but I don’t think that is as oddly embarrassing.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
If I won the lottery, I’d…travel the world and learn as many languages as my brain could store.  I know, I know, I could do that now if I want to, but Im kind of a workaholic and it is hard enough to get me away from my computer to go to Target, so I doubt I am going to Europe anytime soon.  Plus in my free time, I play sudoku, so no German or French for me!

What would you do if you could travel back in time?
If I could travel back in time, I’d…NOT get that VERY short version of the ‘Rachel’ haircut back in 95′.  SOOOO bad.  I think that is my only regret in life, thus far.  However, it did grow out to this really pretty Jenny McCarthy (circa Singled Out era) style.  See all things happen for a reason!

What is your hometown?
My Hometown Is….I was born in Southern California (Anaheim) and we moved around a lot throughout the Inland Empire & Orange County.  I moved to St George UT when I was 13 and that is where I spent my adolescence and graduated from High School.  So I guess I have to claim St George, since it seems to have the biggest impact on my upbringing!  Although as soon as I graduated High School I high tailed it to San Diego, where I lived for 15 years before returning to Southern Utah.

What is your hometown?
Yorktown, Texas.  It’s a tiny town in south Texas.  We had one stop light and a Dairy Queen.  My favorite parts were the lightning bugs in the summer and high school football games on Friday nights.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
If I won the lottery…I would start a rescue ranch for abused, abandoned and special needs animals.

What do you do when your not at work?
When I’m not working…I’m probably going hiking or at the dog park with my German Shepherd, Jedi.

What was your dream growing up?
When I was little…I dreamed of being a veterinarian.  Sadly, the only vet school in Texas is in College Station. And I’m a die-hard Longhorn.  If you know anything about Texas college rivalries, you know that couldn’t happen.  Therefore, business school it was, and here I am.

What would you do if you could travel back in time?
If I could travel back in time, I’d…Go to vet school…in another state.

What are are some causes you care about?
Some causes I care about… JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) My sister was diagnosed with diabetes at 8 years old. March of Dimes, as all three of my children were premies. Advocate for children!

What do you do when you’re not at work?
When I’m not working, I’m probably… Plotting another activity to tire my little boys out. Being that they are 17 months apart, I can do obstacle courses, races, and activities to accommodate the 3. Movement is KEY. Once they are done for the day, you will find me with a very full glass of wine with the hubby.

Lisa Lor

Lisa Lor

Accounting Assistant for Kay Xiong

What is your hometown?
Detroit, MI but I’ve lived majority of my life in the metro Detroit area. Not sure why I’m still here, I really hate our winters and would be completely fine if I never saw snow again in my life! If I could live anywhere else it would defiantly be California or Seattle. Hoping that happens one day.

What word or phrase best describes you?
Adventurous, I really enjoy trying new things, whether it’s food or activities. I would even say spontaneous would describe me as well. I’m always up for anything and I’m the type of person to try to fit a million things in a day. I always try to utilize my time especially when it comes to new places. But if you ever ask me to do anything, 99% of the time I’ll say yes.

What is your guilty pleasure?
7-Eleven coke slurpees. I know they have other drinks similar to it such a coke icees but I know the difference, it has to be a slurpee from 7-eleven. And it has to be coke, I will not drink any other flavors, not even Pepsi.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
I’d invest some of the money, and travel the world with my family and close friends. I already have a list of places I want to visit, and I’m constantly added to it. And depending on how much I won, I would definitely buy a home in all the main cities I love so I could always come back to visit. And I suppose I should pay off my student loans.

What do you do when you’re not at work?
I’m probably taking a nap. I’ve always enjoyed my naps, and they can last up 2-3 hours. Is that still considered a nap? Hah. If I’m not sleeping my life away, I would probably be somewhere outside hiking. I really enjoy the hikes where the end of the trail leads you to a breathtaking view! My most favorite hike was in Vancouver, B.C. It’s so beautiful there, I recommend everyone go there once in their life. Doesn’t matter what hike you go on; I guarantee you the view at the end will be worth it!

What is your guilty pleasure?
Late night Netflix binges and taco Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  I love tacos.  I love tacos with margaritas even more.

If I won the lottery, I’d…
This is a long standing road trip conversation with my husband so I have a very detailed plan which would include: signing the ticket, hiring a great tax attorney, creating a trust, changing my phone number and taking $20,000 to spend on absolutely anything.  After the practicalities are out of the way I’d travel the world and build my dream lake house.  And most definitely hire a chef.

An uncommon fact about me…
My middle name is Blue.  My dad is a big fisherman so when my mom was pregnant they would call me the “Bluegill” which is a type of fish.  It stuck and now I’m Niki Blue.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
See my guilty pleasures above.  Also spending time with my family hiking, enjoying our lake house, having a girl’s night out and tying to keep two little boys (6 and 3 years old) happy and healthy!

Accounting assistant for Nicole Schmitz

What is your hometown?
My Hometown is Leeds, a small town in Utah.

A word that best describes you?
Determined. I’ve always been one to keep working towards something I want to achieve, despite any obstacles that may arise.

What are you passionate about?
Music and art. It is the greatest way to express yourself and I find it is what makes life beautiful. I’ve been a classically trained vocalist of 15+ years and I’ve found it to be my favorite form of art because a lot of our emotions are tied to sounds. Art is part of every aspect of our lives and is something worth embracing.

What do you do when you’re not at work?
When I’m not working, I’m probably baking or hiking. Baking is another form of art that I thoroughly enjoy. It is my own little world and I can do so many things; the sky is your limit. I get to share my hard work and art with others which is even more enjoyable. As for hiking, I am an outdoor enthusiast. Being out in nature and observing the magnificent structures gives me a better perspective of life. Sometimes we overlook the awe that is surrounding us.

When I was little I dreamed of…
Being a musician. I want to be able to be an influence through my words and aid in bringing joy through the intimate sense of sound. Many are deeply impacted by music. Since it deeply impacts our feelings, being able to involve myself in that is an indescribable elation.

What is your hometown?
While I’ve moved around a lot in my life, I would consider my hometown to be Cookeville, TN.  I was born in Baltimore,  Maryland.  We moved often when I was child, eventually settling Tennessee. I spent my college years, and many more, in Cookeville and develop deep ties to the community and the land.  While I spent about 3 years living in Arizona, my heart always remained in Tennessee where we bought a small farm in 2019!

What words best describe you?
The words that best describe me are passionate, driven, loyal, and caring.  I try to live my life doing better today than yesterday.  I take responsibility, and I am a motivator of change.  Sometimes growth isn’t easy, but it is worth it!

If I won the lottery, I’d…
If I won the lottery I would pay off all my debt, invest in my little farm, and run a not-for-profit that primarily focuses on the education, conservation, and distribution of Killifish.  They are some of the most endangered freshwater fish on the planet!  While we cannot control the destruction of their native habitats, we can breed them at home and teach people about these beautiful fish before they are gone forever.

When I was little I dreamed of…
When I was little I dreamed of being a writer for Star Trek.  Yes! I am a huge nerd!  I always wanted to write a great science fiction saga.  I always dreamed of the great adventures that we might have as we explore strange new worlds and civilizations.

Some causes I care about …
Some causes I care about are the American Killifish Association (AKA).  They are the oldest aquarium club in the United States, and they strive to protect my beloved Killifish.  I currently am serving a term on the Board of Trustees.  I am also passionate about animal rescue.  I feel as though I have an ethical obligation to help cats and dogs in need.  Sometimes we short term foster dogs on their way to a forever home; recently, we raised a litter of 7 kittens!  I also believe in self sustainability.  Our 5 year goals with our farm is to produce almost all the food we eat!

An uncommon fact about me…
An uncommon fact about me is that I started my college career with a full ride to play the clarinet! I love music and performing.  Unfortunately I had a closed head injury my last week of high school which caused chronic migraines and memory loss in my early 20s.  The migraines made it impossible to compete and perform at a professional level, so I had to reevaluate.  Thankfully during that time, I began selling insurance and discovered my love of financials services.  There is nothing better one can do for another than to help them reach their goals and dreams.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
When I’m not working I am probably volunteering with the AKA, breeding fish, hiking, camping, or just hanging out around the farm!

What word or phrase best describes you?
Determined.  I will never back down from a challenge and if I don’t succeed the first time, I’ll just try again.  Failure is not something I believe in, it’s just a steppingstone to success.

When I was little, I dreamed of…
Becoming President of the USA.  Obviously, that didn’t happen, but I do like to reach for the stars.  Dream big and work hard.  You never know when something may just pan out.

An uncommon fact about me…
I may be a better marksman than you.  I enjoy going to the range and putting some rounds down range.  I grew up going with my dad every Saturday and now it’s a hobby of my own.

What are some causes you care about?
Our US Veterans.  Being an Army veteran myself, I believe in providing the best future we can for our Vets and giving them every opportunity.

What do you do when you’re not at work?
I’m probably out hiking in the woods if its warm or hiding inside when its cold.  I like to go fishing on my time or out catching crawdaddies.  I enjoy living in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by trees, it’s my own little slice of heaven.

If I won the lottery, I’d…
