What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy nature and outdoor activities, playing golf and spending time, and sharing a meal with loved ones.

Walking my black lab puppy Mila every day; it grounds me and sets my mood for the remainder of the day.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Agencies helping people experiencing homelessness. I have worked with this population and have come to have a better understanding of compassion and care.

Do you have any pets?

Mila, my black lab puppy, enjoys watching the golfers play around the course. She likes to sit and patiently watch them.
