What was the first concert you ever attended?
Technically, it was the Eagles with my dad in 4th grade, but as a nostalgic Millennial, I prefer to claim Boyz II Men.
What are your 3 favorite books?
I have more than three, but these would make my top ten list, for sure: The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers, Lovers at the Chameleon Club by Francine Prose. (I have a thing for catchy titles, which translates into writing compelling headlines on clients’ press releases.)
What would you eat for your final meal?
A perfectly ripe avocado and heirloom tomatoes on a baguette with a glass of rose. Because #roseallday.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
A Broadway actress, of course! I even trained at a performing arts high school for a hot minute before realizing I didn’t want to live in a big city and was not actually a very good singer.
What is one fact about you people find surprising?
I worked as a Pilates instructor and massage therapist during graduate school because I’d always wanted to learn about bodywork, and it was more fun than waiting tables. And that my karaoke specialty is rap songs.
Change can be hard. How do you make it easier?
Deep breaths, tenacity, and a sense of humor.
