What three traits define you?

Passionate, Outgoing, Helpful

What is your personal philosophy?

“It is what it is.” – at first glance it seems like it may be a negative thing, BUT I think it is a nice way to look at things.

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

I couldn’t live without travel – I enjoy adventures and exploring and couldn’t imagine NOT being able to do it.

What is the greatest challenge you have had to overcome in your life thus far?

We moved around a pretty good amount when I was younger for my dad’s job – this was a challenge but also such an amazing experience. It was hard to move around and make new friends, but at the end of the day I have met so many amazing people and had some awesome life experiences because of it.

What is the one thing you cannot resist?

Sweets – it’s a problem!

What is your greatest fear?

Failure

Where is your favorite place to be?

The mountains

What is your favorite thing to do?

Travel! Binge watch shows on Netflix.

Where is the best place you’ve traveled and why?

I would have to say Ireland – it is truly beautiful there, and the people are super friendly. Paris would be a close second!

What’s the weirdest job you’ve ever had?

I was a “secret shopper” at the dining halls in college. I was in a group of people – we would go to the different dining halls, order whatever we were having for that meal, and then report back to the dining staff about our experiences.

Which one would you want most – flying cars, robot housekeepers, or moon cities?

Robot Housekeepers – HANDS DOWN!

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

Probably something in the fashion field – like refurbishing vintage pieces and things like that

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?

Don’t be so ready to fit in – it is OK to stand out. Also, don’t be so hard on yourself – life is good!

What are your three words or phrases you overuse the most?

“I know, right?”, “It is what it is.”, “Listen,…”

What is the best book you have ever read?

The Lorax – I really like the message!

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I have been to 37 of the 50 states!
