Inside The Mind Of...

  • What's your favorite aspect of your job? The variety ‐ working with many different clients can be
    challenging but also rewarding.

    languages and learning about different cultures.
  • What was your first job? "Coat Check Girl" at Lannings, a high end restaurant in Bath, Ohio (It was really good money)
  • What is one trait you possess that you inherited from your mother or father? My father always taught us to finish what we start so I am very project oriented.
  • What makes you get out of bed every day? I'm a morning person so morning is the best time of day for me.
  • What do you consider is your “brightest” quality? Positive attitude ‐ you will rarely find me without a smile on my face
