Interesting Facts:

What do you love to do outside of work?

My go-to is pretty much anything to do with arts or crafting: baking and decorating cakes, painting, pottery, embroidery, etc. – I love it all. I also enjoy spending time reading, exploring new places around town, and gardening.

What’s the last book you read and what did you think?
I recently finished “Cloud Cuckoo Land” by Anthony Doerr. It’s beautifully written, the story is intricate and unique, and it has a perfect amount of suspense to make it nearly impossible to put down. There are not a ton of books I would reread, but this is definitely one of them.

If you could have any other fantasy career, what would it be and why?
I would be a museum curator of ancient Near Eastern history and culture at the Smithsonian. I have always loved the aesthetic and artistry of museums, plus history and archaeology have been life-long passions of mine.
