What did you want to be as a kid and why?
I wanted to be a dancing lawyer…for reals. I would do ballet and pretend to fight court cases at the same time. #NerdAlert

A fact about you that others may find surprising?
Before there was Facebook, I started a online/offline social networking group that was so controversial, we had protestors.  Only over a couple of glasses of wine will I spill more…

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning medal for?
Confusing messages sent via text and email to my staff via Siri. I am a World Wide Champion at it.

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Organize…everything. Bins. Labels. Calendars. The works. I’m excited just thinking about the possibility…

A truck full of radioactive waste spills in the office parking lot as you are heading home for the night. Everyone’s covered head to toe in the goo. What superpower are you hoping for?

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Make food. I am a Level 10 recipe hoarder and there are just not enough hours in a day to make every pan of lasagna, crock pot meal or cheesecake that I have a recipe for.

A truck full of radioactive waste spills in the office parking lot as we are all headed home for the night. Everyone’s covered head to toe in the goo. What superpower are you hoping for?
This is tough, but if I HAD to choose, I’d want to be able to move things with my mind. It seems like it would be good for lazy Sundays or pulling pranks.

Desert island situation. You can pick one movie, food, and drink to consume for a lifetime. What are you bringing?
For my movie I’m going with Fight Club, never ever gets old. My food of choice is going to have to be home made venison lasagna. As for the drink, I’ll go practical and say water.

As the only human left on Earth, what would you do?
Depends on the type of apocalypse we are talking about here. Was it a virus, zombies, odd brain scrambling cell phone attack? Either way, I’m claiming the title “King of the World”, setting up shop on a mountain (strategic advantage), stockpiling resources, then mapping out a plan to restart human civilization. You know, the basics.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning medal for?
I’m 5’2, so I’m not a fast walker, runner or swimmer. I am, however, a crazy-fast talker! I can talk over 400 words per minute, and there is a video floating around the interwebs that can prove it. I have even been asked to slow down my speech when talking in Spanish! I have a feeling that I would be on one of those podiums if “Speed Talking” was an Olympic Sport.

Desert island situation. You can pick one movie, food, and drink to consume for a lifetime. What are you bringing?
Easy.
Food: Twizzler’s Nibs. No doubt.
Drink: Coffee. Sorry to be cliche, but it truly gives me life. Although, I’d die of dehydration rather quickly, so that is a pretty legit oxymoron.
Movie: Tough one. Steel Magnolias or The Phantom of the Opera. Love me some Dolly Parton, but the Phantom soundtrack pulls my heart strings!
