Q. Name someone else from ISLE (a client) that inspires you and why?
A. This is a hard question. All my clients inspire me in different ways. My first inspiration and reason why I came to ISLE is Joe Gallagher. His tender love and naughty smile, his mischievous ways to get what he wanted, his unconditional love… he taught me so much!
I never knew “true, pure, love” really was possible in this life until I met little Joe. Although he is not with us here on earth he will always be in my heart. I think about him every day for one reason or other. To this day, his memory pulls me through the rough days. I still learn something new every day from my current clients, and like I said each and every one of them inspire me in a different way, to be better and do more, I love them all, but my first inspiration was little Joe.
