In your spare time, what do you like to do on the weekends?
My husband and I love to explore, whether that is hiking up the mountains in our area or going across the country to watch a baseball game. We love to go to new places!
What’s your favorite snack and name one thing you can’t live without while working?
I love anything with dark chocolate! I wouldn’t be able to live without my notebook at work, I am always writing things down or going back to look something up from previous days.
Favorite book & favorite movie?
Any book by Francine Rivers. I’m not sure what my favorite movie would be…I watched I Can Only Imagine on a plane recently and cried like a baby. It was a great movie, but I probably should not have watched it in public!
