My dad has been a constant source of quiet strength and humble perspective in my life, and has taught me that hard work and persistence really do pay off. As a team, my parents have taught me the value of drive, passion, curiosity, commitment, and love, and there aren’t enough words to thank them for all they’ve done for me. And last, but certainly not least, my incredible husband, Jason, who (and he’ll tease me later for being mushy) is the love of my life. He reminds me daily that a sense of humor, a penchant for silliness, and a love of laughter are the things that make life worth living. Throughout the writing of this book, he endured many of my frustrated rants and anxious ramblings, and yet he was my unwavering source of support. He has never doubted me, and his calm, indefatigable confidence always gives me strength. He has kept me balanced, sane, and laughing through everything we’ve been through, a gift for which I could never thank him enough. COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL xi
