Life Impact

Everyone has mentors in their life, but everyone's life is impacted by several individuals that tend to develop ones character, mentality, skill set, etc. Listed and pictured below are several of the people that have made a difference in who I have become today. As my blog/life progresses, the list will continue to grow. In making this list, I had the opportunity to reflect upon the great people that selflessly extended their mindset and knowledge, to name a few and I'm glad to have crossed paths with them. With the exception of my sister, Sarah, the list is in no particular order. (I'm sure I will remember more names as I go...)
