Are you a dog person or a cat person (or neither)?

Dog person all the way! My husband and I have two English Bulldogs, Bentley and Lilah, who are our babies. We adore them and they are spoiled rotten.

Which season is your favorite?

My favorite season is summer. I love being outside, cookouts, swimming, the Farmers Market, long days. All of it!

What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever received?

The best professional advice I’ve ever received was to try things outside of my comfort zone. No one is an expert at their job from the beginning. In my experience it has paid off to push myself to try new things, learn from new experiences, and grow in each position that I’ve had.
