Craziest thing on your Ultimate Life List? The item that's currently top of my bucket list is run 30+ miles in a road running relay.
Best piece of advice you ever received? If you say you're sorry all the time, people will think you did something wrong.
What brought you to the SheHive? And what keeps you here? It’s a place dedicated to facilitating growth in whatever way (learning style, stage of life/career, etc.) a woman needs offering many different opportunities for personal and professional growth. It's also a great place to meet smart and talented women and join a vibrant, diverse community.
How do you want to be remembered? As a person who wrung every drop of goodness out of this life and gave as much to others as she got.
She is Me is the SheHive’s on-going series to introduce you to the women of the Hive.

What brought you to the SheHive? And what keeps you here? Ursula Adams. When I first met her at the Build Institute I knew she was going to be someone I wanted to spend more time with and obtain her knowledge. I love the sisterhood of the SheHive - it’s right in line with my business model of empowering women.
How do you want to be remembered? I want to be remembered by my contribution to helping transform people's lives though health and wellness. Not just getting them on the path to eat well and exercise but to also have a positive outlook on life and the mindset that they can achieve anything they put their mind, heart, and soul into.#SHEisME

Craziest thing on your Ultimate Life List? Write a book that Oprah recommends to her audience and appear on her Super Soul Sunday broadcast - because my work is making a difference on the planet and is THAT GOOD!
Best piece of advice you ever received? I should be learning something new for as long as I am alive. (My Dad told me this.)
What brought you to the SheHive? And what keeps you here? I saw an ad for the SheHive on Facebook. In fact, I saw multiple ads and friends who were interested, so I reserved a spot at the monthly orientation. What keeps me here is the group of powerhouse women I met and Ursula's frankness, sincerity, and sense of humor.
How do you want to be remembered? I would like to be remembered as the woman who wasn't afraid to take risks and knew that because she is free, she could design and redesign her own path.

Currently reading: I just finished The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas, following teenage Starr Carter whose balance between her two worlds (the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends) is shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer.
This was such a heartbreaking story, but incredibly beautiful and thought provoking. As a white woman trying to make sense of the world during the month Philando Castille’s case was resolved with no charge, it was eye-opening to see a similar story told from a young woman who realizes the power of her voice in the face of seemingly insurmountable problems facing her community.
Currently watching: I have so many dramas lined up, but all I want lately is comedy. I’m re-watching and introducing my husband to the zany genius that is Broad City, and keeping up on Bob’s Burgers – featuring my mom role model, Linda Belcher, who is unapologetically herself and always looks on the bright side.
Craziest thing on your Ultimate Life List? Ride The Nevis Swing in New Zealand, the world’s highest and most famous swing. Riders jump from a platform a mile high over a canyon, sailing across at 75 mph.
Best piece of advice you ever received? Put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others.
What brought you to the SheHive? And what keeps you here? Whenever I am in the SheHive, my bitchy inner critic goes silent and is replaced with the intelligent, creative, and funny voices of this amazing community. They challenge and empower me, accept me for who I am, and see the potential in me that I am often too afraid to let loose.
How do you want to be remembered? As the person who didn’t wait to say or do things. I tell those closest to me what they mean to me and why I love them. I also try to do at least one major “Life List” thing every year, pushing myself to do things that may seem scary or out of reach initially.
Each week in July we’re profiling a new SheHiver. This week meet Jacquelyn V. of Wixom.

Craziest thing on your Ultimate Life List? I would love to Bungee Jump and Shark Dive within my lifetime. Although more realistically one day I'd love to own and ride a motorcycle.
Best piece of advice you ever received? After a particularly rough day at work a coworker sat me down and said "Work smarter, not harder" and it forever changed my outlook on working myself to the bone.
What brought you to the SheHive? And what keeps you here? I love going to the SheHive because every time I meet more open minded and inspiring women and I keep coming back for those women and great conversation that takes place.
How do you want to be remembered? I would love to be remembered as an adventurer who inspired and helped others lead an authentic and fulfilling life.
