What are your interests outside of work?

I love creative activities! Painting, drawing fashion, decorating, and baking are some of my favorites. I also like exploring a good, old bookstore.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your mental and emotional well-being?

Laughing. I think humor is a medicine. I try to get some good laughs throughout the day whether it be from talking to other people or watching videos/movies. I also love to make others laugh.

Do you have any pets and what's your favorite pet story?

I have a Siberian Husky named Luna and two parakeets who are both named Birdie. They are a funny trio in so many ways and bring joy and love to our family. The memories I’ll never forget are two times Luna managed to get us to play her game of “who can find me and catch me first.” We learned that Huskies are notorious for being escape artists. The screaming, panicking and crying turned into laughs (and of course relief) when we find her smiling/laughing and having the time of her life. She comes back home acting like nothing terrifying occurred.
