HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR OWN SENSE OF SELF-WORTH?
Many people measure self-worth by how much money they make, what their job is, or other material objects. I judge my worth on how I feel and how I am making those around me feel. I let happiness be my guide!

WHAT SOCIAL ISSUES ARE CURRENTLY MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU?
The health of our children and the impact it will play in driving the future of our society is a subject very dear to me. That is why I am passionate about the work we do at Brain Balance!

WHAT HAS HELPED YOU BECOME A BETTER LEADER?
I have always had a passion and love for working with children and helping them obtain optimal health and function, but it wasn’t until I became a mother five years ago that I was able to understand the deeper impact of my role in teaching our children and families the role they play in their own health.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST CONFIDENCE BOOSTER FOR YOU PERSONALLY?
I grew up with a mother and father that instilled in me the passion and drive to go after whatever I desired. Their influence has had the biggest role on my confidence.

HAVE YOU HAD CHALLENGES OVERCOMING PERFECTIONISM?
I have come to understand that doing my best and giving 100 percent toward everything I do is as close to perfection as I will get. Being ok with this fact, and not beating myself up, is one of the many lessons I have had to learn.

WHAT CHARACTER QUALITIES MATTER THE MOST TO YOU?
Honesty, integrity, and respect are the character qualities that matter the most to me.

Monica Harris, Center Director

WHAT SOCIAL ISSUES ARE CURRENTLY MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU?
Someone coined the phrase, “If you have more than you need, build a bigger table.” I believe we all have an obligation to give our time, talent, and resources to make life better for others. The world is full of beautiful, loving, and compassionate people. Noticing them, being grateful, and living up to their legacy are good goals.

HOW DO YOU FEEL YOUR COMPANY MAKES EFFORTS TOWARDS IMPROVING THE CULTURE OF OUR COMMUNITY?
We work with children who struggle academically, socially, and behaviorally to build bigger, brighter futures and happier family dynamics. I get to see parents take a deep breath and start truly enjoying their family time.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST CONFIDENCE BOOSTER FOR YOU PERSONALLY?
Having three amazing children grow up to be truly amazing adults who care about the world around them.

HAVE YOU HAD CHALLENGES OVERCOMING PERFECTIONISM?
Perfectionism is an illusion; life is messy. We make mistakes. Overcoming a failure or obstacle is much more impressive than victory without challenge.

WHAT CHARACTER QUALITIES MATTER THE MOST TO YOU?
Desire – knowing what you want. Discipline – knowing what you will sacrifice for it. Determination – knowing how long and how hard you will focus on it. Duty – achieving your goals with grace, compassion, stewardship and humility.

WHAT MOMENT IN LIFE DEFINED YOU PERSONALLY?
The moment I learned that only I was responsible for my behavior and for my behavior alone.
