  • Outside of work you’ll find me…

    Hitting up a workout class (yoga, boxing, running, you name it!) or trying out a new restaurant with friends

  • The first thing you do every morning is…

    Make my bed! Then, I’d love a smoothie bowl and a hot cappuccino, but most days I settle for the closest coffee

  • Dream Vacation?

    Anywhere with a beach, but Poipu Bay, Kauai has long since been a family favorite

  • What book have you read again and again?

    Pride & Prejudice, but really any 19th century or WWII era book has me hooked
