What was your first job?

My first job was working at an ice cream shop during high school (people are often impressed by my soft serve ice cream cone skills). This job taught me how to provide excellent customer service and work quickly under pressure. It also taught me how to remain calm and courteous when dealing with disgruntled and not so polite customers. This experience helped prepare me for serving clients in my professional career.

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?

I can crochet. When I was younger, I won several blue ribbons at the Michigan State Fair. I love making scarves for family and friends because they are easy to customize and come in handy during Michigan winters.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I always thought it would be so cool to be able to fly. When I was younger, I was a gymnast and cheerleader. My favorite part of doing those sports was when I could tumble and flip through the air. During those moments, it feels like you're flying. As an adult, I absolutely hate getting stuck in traffic. So, being able to bypass the frequent rush-hour congestion and Michigan road construction would be amazing.
