Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy rock climbing, hikes with my dog, reading, and traveling.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Connecting with loved ones - I believe that connection and community are vital for my well-being.

How do you recharge?

Rock climbing indoors and outdoors is one of my favorite activities. When I'm climbing, I'm completely present and in-the-moment.

Do you have any pets?

I have a rescue dog, Lola, who is a mixed-breed and is full of energy and excitement. Lola absolutely loves peanut-butter and never lets me forget about her nightly peanut butter treat. I rescued Lola from a high-kill shelter and she was brought to me on a bus with several other dogs. When she came off the bus, she was shaking and scared. I knelt down, put my arms around her, and she looked up at me and started wagging her tail. We have been together ever since.
