Who I am

Who I am outside of the workplace is something I believe is important to share. 

  • I am a dog mom to Blue, a lab-mix, who I adopted from The Anti-Cruelty Society.
  • I absolutely love interior design and that has translated to a side-hustle of refinishing furniture and countless DIY (do-it-yourself) interiors projects.
