Who have been influential in your life and why?
I owe everything I have in life to my parents. They have taught me how to be humble, compassionate and a woman of action. They are always pushing me to be a better version of myself than I was the day before and I am so grateful for their guidance.
Outside of work, what do you like to do?
Traveling by far is my favorite thing to do. I love exploring new places, taking in new sights and sounds, and most of all, new foods. I’m an avid reader, a runner and a lifelong Michigan football fan (Go Blue!). My cat Chandler is the love of my life – you can find me snuggling up on a couch with him any given Sunday cheering on the Bears with an ice cold brewski in hand.
Drink or food of choice?
It’s no secret that I enjoy a good glass of wine, or multiple. If there happens to be sushi on the table, I’ll probably take a breather from chugging my Sauvignon Blanc to take a bite.
What is the best gift you ever received for your birthday?
My birthday is at the end of March and was traditionally during spring vacation. Although not being able to celebrate with my friends bummed me out when I was a teenager, I actually missed celebrating the big day with my family in exotic places like “Hilton Head” as I got older. For my 25th birthday, my mom called me a week beforehand to say she’d gotten plane tickets for the two of us to go to Florida together. I don’t even know whether or not she knew how much I missed those family trips but the surprise made my birthday something really special.
If there was one brand you would love to work with, which one and why?
Naf Naf Grill – they are a growing brand with unbelievable food and potential to be the next big whig in fast casual. If they happen to give us free Naf Naf Friday’s to help cut the cost of our weekly obsession, that would also make me really happy.
