Mrs. Pennsylvania International®

Dixie Shaffer

1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
As a mother, wife, first grade teacher, and community volunteer, I am always trying to be a positive role model. By way of my fitness /nutrition website and my fundraising events for the American Heart Association, I hope to make a difference in lives of people all over the nation.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
Many people are not aware of my hidden talents. I can roll my tongue, flip it over, do the wave with it, and touch it to my nose. I am also an expert at being able to do the hula hoop for long periods of time.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
Being healthy has always been a priority for me. Not only do I lift weights 3 times a week, do cardio 5 times a week, take dance classes, and eat healthy foods, I created a website on fitness/nutrition for others to use as a tool to develop healthier lifestyles.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
Knowing right from wrong, being compassionate, showing respect, having open communication, and being there for one another are at the heart of our family values. My husband and I hope we have instilled these ideals in our children.

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
When I asked my family this question, they all responded the same way: biting the inside of my mouth and picking at the skin around my fingernails. Unfortunately, bad habits are developed by watching others, and I have noticed my son and daughter doing the same thing!
