Q + A

What is your favorite place you’ve been to, and where do you want to go next?

I just went to Portugal and fell in love with everything there – the people, the food, and the wine – so idyllic!  Next on my list is the fjords in Norwary!

. Which Disney villain(s) do you love to hate (or just plain love)?

I wouldn’t say I love Scar from the Lion King, but I do embarrassingly know all the words to “Be Prepared” from the first film, and sometimes feel the need to sing the entire song (complete with different voices) while driving. 

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or dessert in general?

Favorite dessert is somewhere between a good s’more on a summer day and Oreo ice cream.

What are your favorite hobbies outside of work?

I like to think that running is a hobby, but really I just listen to podcasts and walk really fast or jog really slow depending on your perspective. To balance out all that “running” I also like baking anything involving chocolate.
