Something about me people might not know

I’m half Lebanese. Most people think I’m Italian. My last name is mispronounced all the time (I’m not offended!) and made to sound Italian (“Tonor-EH”), but really it’s pronounced “Tonor-E.” The original spelling, “Tannoury,” was changed when my great grandparents went through Ellis Island.

Where I find inspiration in day-to-day life

I always remember the saying by Maya Angelou “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” I apply this to how I live my life.

My favorite getaway spot

I’ve spent many springs and summers at Lake Bruin in St. Joseph, Louisiana. It’s the best place to reconnect with a simple lifestyle.

My favorite motto

Life is short. Buy the shoes. Eat the cake. Take the trip. And, of course, work hard.

What energizes me the most

Being around others. I’m definitely a people person and love being in a social environment.

One word my colleagues would use to describe me
