What do you like most about your job?
I love working with people and placing them all over the U.S. I often ask for photos from my travelers. I feel like I can live vicariously through them and it’s so exciting to see the things they get to see. On a personal level I love the flexibility this job offers me to juggle home/work/family time. I can be available for all the people in my life who need me, my kids and my travelers. And I love the culture of AHS!

Who’s your favorite band/singer?
If I had to choose one, these days it would be John Prine or Chris Stapleton…..but honestly who can choose. John Denver, James Taylor, Neil Diamond, The Eagles, Journey, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Bread. Do any of you reading this even know who these people are?
How would you describe your personality?
I am an extroverted introvert! I am actually super shy (or I used to be) but I have learned now to fill the voids because I can’t stand the awkward silences. Now I talk too much, but I’m still super shy internally.
Who is someone that inspires you, and why?
The underdog who keeps going no matter the odds! No matter where you finish in the race, keep pushing to be the best YOU you can be. I love a good story about people who persevere through adversity and reach the goals.
