I’m a certified yoga instructor, and I’ve won a Smack Talk award. That about sums it up.

Q&A Time!


Q: What’s your hometown and current residence? 

A: I’ve moved more times than I would like to admit. I have Midwestern roots, but spent most of my childhood in Mississippi. My adult life has been in Chicago, Boston, Denver and, for now, Los Angeles. I am ready to settle and get rid of all the boxes!


Q: What’s a little known fact about you? 

A: I own a disco ball. One time I took my friend to an endoscopy appointment. To try to make it fun, I brought the disco ball and made my car the enDISCOmobile!


Q: Do you have family or pets? Are you a hermit?

A: I’m an extroverted introvert who loves time to myself and time with my friends. My office mate is my 13.5 year old lab mix, who I rescued when she was 1. She’s truly a great dog – and my buddy! I’m also a daughter, sister, and aunt.


Q: Something you say again and again? 

A: “What is happening?!”


Q: What profession, other than  your own, would you like to attempt? 

A: I’d love to own a tea café. I’m also fascinated by neuroscience.


Q: What sound do you hate?

A: The beeping sound a truck makes when it’s backing up.


Q: What quote from history sums up your philosophy of life?

A: “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson


Q: Any pet peeves?

A: Scented trash bags and selfishness.
