My favorite things to do outside of work would be cooking and baking. I love trying new recipes, especially from cuisines I am not as familiar with. Plus, when you’re done you get to eat your work! To offset my baking and cooking hobbies, I enjoy riding my bike on the levee and going for a swim.
The biggest influence so far in my career has been my Dad. To me, he is an example of someone who is extremely hardworking, but also knows when to take a break and enjoy his free time.
One talent I’ve always wanted is the ability to sing. I am truly awful and have been booed off the stage at a karaoke bar because everyone thought I was joking. My friends say when I sing, I’m so off-key that I unintentionally hit the harmonies.
If I wasn’t in the communications field, I’d be a chef. I love preparing meals for my family and friends, and choosing menus for events. My ideal job would be a chef travelling the Italian Countryside with my dogs eating as much pasta as I can.
