Do you have any pets? 

We have a family dog named Molly. She literally smiles any time someone simply approaches her.   

What is the most interesting place you’ve traveled?  

I was fortunate enough to travel to Scotland with my family and stay in a B&B while there. Staying in a B&B with a local family made all the difference in being able to learn about their culture. I was able to see their day-to-day life as sheep farmers and was taught to dance by locals at a pub! 

What did you want to be when you were a kid?  

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a nurse, which is so different from a job in higher education. I quickly realized I do not have the stomach for nursing, unfortunately. I’m so thankful for all they are capable of. They’re amazing people!
