Your Turn/Jennifer Kelty

When I was a kid, I wanted to be ... a veterinarian. I love animals.

What would you rather be doing right now? Running or reading a good book.

Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone that ... I don't like chocolate.

Other than your wedding day and/or the birth of your children, what was your proudest moment? Getting my MBA while still working full time and running three kids all over the place.

It really stinks when ... your children are hurting, and you can't fix it.

What word in the dictionary would your face be next to? Talkative.

I always laugh when ... I get together with all my brothers and my parents. I am not always sure if I am laughing with them or at them.

Invite any three people, living or dead, to dinner. Who are they? Jesus. I would love to meet the person who sacrificed Himself for me. I would also like to have a big family dinner with those who are no longer with us and those that are still with us.

At the end of a really long day at work, I like to ... find a quiet place and read a book.

People who knew me in high school thought I was ... I am not sure what they thought. You would have to ask them.

My most unforgettable brush with greatness was ... I worked at a luncheon when I was in high school, and Charlton Heston was there.

I would drop all my plans tonight if I had the chance to ... move to Hawaii. It has to be warmer than it is here right now.

If someone gave me a million dollars, there is STILL no way I would ... have a mortgage on my house. I hate being in debt.

America should be more concerned about ... special education. Until you have a child with special needs, you really don't think about it. There are so many things that are lacking in educating those with special needs, and there seems to be very little funding to do the things that really make a difference and that need to be done.

I'm OK if there's ever a national shortage of ... fitness clothes. It's a bit of an obsession for me.

When I'm on the internet, I always go to ... Facebook to catch up on all the things going on with my family and friends who live all over the world.

What is the most useful piece of advice you have ever received? It's actually a quote by Albert Einstein. "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."

When I'm cruising down the road, I'm likely listening to ... WGCA, although I love all different kinds of music.

I always get sentimental when ... it's around Christmas time. I love being around all of my family.

The older I get, the more I realize ... how fast time goes by.

If I had one "do-over," I would ... I believe that everything happens for a reason, so I don't think I would do anything over because I may not be where I am today.

My favorite item of clothing is ... yoga pants. I would live in yoga pants if it was acceptable to wear them everywhere I went.

If I've learned anything at all ... You never know what someone else is going through in their life, so be kind to everyone.
