Describe yourself in one word. Bright! Studying hospitality helped me realize that I am a people person. I am the first to say hello and ask how you are doing. Colorful bright colors are also my esthetic. I always gravitate to bright colors because they are fun and whimsical.
Red or White Wine: Neither! Craft beer and cider are the way to my heart.
Cake or Pie: Cake over pie any day! You can’t go wrong with Funfetti cake and buttercream frosting.
