What is your favorite podcast?
I’m a sucker for a True Crime Podcast, any and all. I’ve found myself delaying in the car for an extra 15 minutes to finish an episode. It all started with the hype around Serial years ago, and a recent favorite of mine is Crime Junkie.
Who would you want to have coffee with?
Maren Morris. We just get each other, even if we’ve never actually met.
What ERGs are you a part of?
I am a part of the AWE ERG!
What ALKU Gives Back events or programs have you participated in?
Lazarus House events as well as many Rodman Rides for Kids!
Are you involved in giving back in your local community?
Not as much as I’d like, but I just moved to Natick Massachusetts as my new home and community. I’d like to find ways to get involved with the town!
What’s your career theme song?
Good Mood by REI. Typically you’ll see me smiling around the office or just trying to lighten the mood!
What app can’t you live without?
Reminders App….you could say I am a Type A….
What is your favorite office lunch spot?
La Rosas! Italian is my favorite and this place has a little bit of everything.
What is your go-to pick from the snack closet?
White Cheddar Cheez-Its when we have them, if not just your standard delicious Gold Fish.
How do you Have Fun Working Hard™?
Just bringing the positive energy. Bugging my managers, making sure they aren’t always being so SERIOUS. Enjoying the ride!
What is your biggest career advice?
Embrace the struggle. Good things are hard.
