In terms of growth and economic development, where would you like to see Southern Indiana in 10 years?
In 10 years, I would like to see Southern Indiana positioned as one of the top 10 places to live, work, and raise a family in the Midwest. Southern Indiana is poised for greatness and with the right partnerships, community planning, and by simply working together to plan for growth, we have all the right ingredients to make Southern Indiana a blue-ribbon recipe for success!
Who or what motivates you?
I am motivated by my family, my co-workers, our community, enthusiastic people, smiles, music, big dreams and laughter. All of these things indicate happiness to me and, in turn, all of these things provide motivation for me. But, I will say that my mom and dad are like my rocks. Whether I am in crisis or in celebration, my parents are the rocks and foundation of everything that I get to learn from or enjoy every day. They are my reason for dusting myself off and giving 110 percent to everything I touch.
What habits/routines have helped with your success?
My habits and routines were the result of the environment that I grew up in and our family life. I was taught by my parents, Janet and Bob Temple, that anything worth having wouldn’t come easy, and you will have to work hard, work smart and be patient and success will find you. It’s these principles that were shared with me early in life with a dash of “being humble” and “being kind,” that have helped me to find my version of success. Because in the end, who is to define your success other than you.
What pushes you through your most difficult times?
My push is from my husband of 27 years, Ted Huber. As he always says, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going,” coupled with some advice that “You can only worry about those things that you can have some influence or control over.” Admittedly, working with your spouse can be challenging at times, but we always find a way to work it out. We complement each other, and he is my biggest cheerleader. He advocates to get me positioned in responsibilities that highlight my strengths, which help to push me through anything – personal or professional.
What are you most proud of professionally?
I would say I am most proud of my abilities to bring people together for a common goal and my work in our community. There is no doubt for those who know me best that I ABSOLUTELY love my work out in our community! Anytime I can represent Huber’s Orchard, Winery, & Vineyards and add value to the task at hand, I am thankful to be a part of the process. I am very thankful that my family work team has allowed me the opportunity to spend time in our community.
