What is a key tidbit you give to others? 

The beauty of life can hide in the unexpected. Sometimes your strongest and most cherished memories can be of the most unremarkable events. Don’t take any moment for granted.

Favorite vacation/getaway destination? 

New Orleans has a special kind of magic. The flowers that grow there, the music in the air, the beautiful people, the delicious food, and the incredible layered history join together to make it a one of a kind city for me.

Do you have a goal outside of your career that you'd like to achieve?

I want to learn how to garden, but even more than that, COVID has made me want to learn how to farm. One day I will renovate an old farmhouse and learn how to farm.
