Here are some fun questions!
Do you have a favorite book or movie?
I love all of Dan Brown’s books because he writes the perfect blend of science, adventure, and romance. I love rom-com movies because I think movies should make us feel good.

I have two dogs: a golden retriever named Oliver and a husky/shepherd mix named Wilber. We also have six chickens!
What is your favorite travel destination, and why?
My favorite place to visit is St. Pete Beach in Florida, but I dream of traveling to Greece!
What is your go-to comfort food or favorite cuisine?
I consider myself a foodie and I enjoy trying new things the best! For comfort food, I like to go back to the basics: pizza, mac ‘n cheese, and burgers all hit the spot!
Outside of work, what activities do you enjoy?
I love to cook and bake.
