I was born and raised right here in St. Louis, MO.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I either wanted to be a doctor or musician/singer.
What was the first job you had?
As a teenager I worked at a deli on the Hill with my sisters and best friend. Good times were had by all!

In one sentence or less, how would your spouse/significant other describe you?
My husband would say that I am perfectly imperfect.
Favorite hobbies/things to do on the weekend?
While I would prefer to read on the weekends, most of my free time is spent taxiing kids (and their friends) from one sporting event to the next and I love every minute of it.
If you could live in any other country where would it be?
I haven’t traveled outside of the US so I’m not sure about “living”, but I’d love to visit Scotland.
What is your favorite vacation place or what vacation plans do you have this year?
I recently traveled to Vegas (first time EVER on a plane) to see my sisters, but I truly liked visiting Memphis with my hubby.

My #1 bucket list item is to see the beach/ocean.
If you could live the life of a celebrity, who would it be and why?
Beyonce, of course! I mean it is Bey!
Do you like to cook? What is your favorite thing to make?
I do like to cook. My favorite would be anything grilled. (Little to no cleanup required!) And yes, you can grill bacon.
Favorite STL restaurant?
Crown Candy Kitchen. 1 pound BLTs. Delicious!
What do you do at IC?
I am the Administrative Coordinator. I oversee our CRM, manage Replink and other customer feeds, and work closely with the Marketing team to keep our website fresh.
