If you had not chosen your current profession, what profession would you choose and why?
I originally wanted to be a news broadcaster and would still love to do that if I wasn’t involved with nonprofit work. I like the fact that what you’re reporting on is always changing and it’s a great way to meet interesting people. Would love to have my own talk show.
We just got back from a trip to Disney World to celebrate my daughter’s birthday.
When I want to relax, I … :
Put on some great music and play it LOUD! I really enjoy sitting on our rooftop deck flipping through magazines and Face Timing with my best friend in Rochester, NY.
Favorite movie, music:
I have so many favorite movies but ones that stand out are “The Help,” “Forest Gump” and “Dirty Dancing” (I’m aging myself). I really like country music and especially enjoy music by Luke Combs, Michael Ray, Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town and the Zac Brown Band. I enjoy digital scrapbooking and spending time with my family.
