Favorite vacation/getaway destination?
Marco Island, Florida. I go pretty frequently throughout the year and seeing dolphins everyday never gets old.
Do you have a goal outside of your career that you'd like to achieve?
In April 2020, I was planning on spending two weeks traveling around Japan. Due to the pandemic, I had to cancel my trip. I still have a goal to travel there as I have never been to Asia and it is at the top of my bucket list for trips!
