What’s on your bucket list? Bhutan is tops. New Zealand and I are destined to be good friends someday, with visits to Bali and Australia as part of the journey. When it comes to travel, I could go on … and on …

What words would you use to describe yourself? Happy. Intense. Word nerd. Productive. Compassionate. Dedicated. Nonstop. Grateful.

Favorite playlist? I used to think I was addicted to the “Train” station on Pandora, but since the day it was released, I’ve listened to nothing but Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording). I’ve seen the show 10 times and got to meet the genius behind the phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda (I’ll show you the pic if you ask – or even if you don’t). No matter your musical preferences, Hamilton is a great piece of art!
