Fun Facts: 

What do you love to do outside of work?

Read, exercise, travel to the beach and spend quality time with my husband and golden retriever, Sully. 

What's the last book you read and what did you think?

I am currently reading "Change of Heart" by Jodi Picoult. It's been good so far. I like reading Jodi Picoult books because they always have a twist at the end that you never saw coming. 

If you could have any other fantasy career, what would it be and why? 

I would love to own my own business, either a bakery or doggie daycare so that I could take my dog with me to work every day.
