Probably just watching my parents and step-parents learn what they needed to do as I was learning what I needed to do. Right, you just lead by example and “okay, this is what we are learning, this is our new normal.”

Interviewer: So, for example?

It’s good to see that, you know, everybody has issues, and it takes a couple times and it takes practice.
