Favorite quote (and why?)  It’s actually a song lyric: “Choose to chance the rapids, dare to dance the tides” The River, by Garth Brooks. This quote reminds to me to step beyond where I am comfortable!

Former job that is least like your current job?  I worked the summer between my first and second year of college on a Highway Road Crew (Texas Department of Transportation) It was a challenging job, but I also learned from the crew the significance of teamwork.

Hobbies?  Hiking (with my dogs), dancing, and Netflix!

Favorite books on Audible? Fiction: The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern; The narrator, Jim Dale, brings the vivid, creative story to life! Non-Fiction: Mountains Beyond Mountains, by Tracy Kidder. Not only is the content compelling, the production is outstanding!

What’s the fastest way to make me smile? Ask me about my 2 dogs Scout and Rowan!
