It’s your time to shine!
What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
My favorite TV show is New Girl and one of my all-time favorite movies is Miracle.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
As nerdy as it sounds, when I was little I really wanted to be a banker so I could pass out lollipops. I remember every time I went to the bank they always gave me a lollipop (and what little kid doesn’t love lollipops!). As I got older this developed into wanting to be a bookkeeper and then an accountant (yes, I weirdly knew I wanted to be an accountant since I was a junior in high school!).
What hobbies do you have?
One of my all-time favorite hobbies is coaching hockey. I’m fortunate enough that I get to coach a high school development program in the fall and coach a local high school team in the winter. When I’m not coaching, I enjoy running road races and spending time with family and friends.
What was your first job?
Technically, my first job was when I was 15 – I was a dietary aide at an assisted living facility. However, in fifth grade, I opened up a little corner store where I sold candy to neighborhood kids. I did this until I went to high school, in which my little sisters then took over.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
This is a hard one but I would say that I love playing the piano/classical music. It’s always been soothing and very therapeutic for me.
What kind of music do you like? What’s on the playlist in your car?
Although I listen to many different genres, the majority of the time you can catch me listening to country music.
Do you have a “Bucket List?” If so, what’s on the top of the list?
I don’t have a “bucket list” per se but I would absolutely love to travel more!
What food could you NOT live without?
This one is difficult to answer right now being pregnant…but SUSHI! I’ve already said it will be my first meal after my son is born.
If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would that be?
I’d love to meet Zooey Deschanel!
What’s your favorite sport to watch?
Football! As much as I love hockey (having played and now coaching) I definitely enjoy watching football over all other sports.
If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
The ultimate adult superpower – having the ability to organize and clean with the simple point of my finger! Having recently bought a house (and with a little one on the way) it would definitely make life a whole lot easier.
Alone and on an island, what book would you take with you?
Anything by James Patterson. However, if I have to choose just one, I would absolutely choose The Black Book by him.
