If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
That sounds horrible! I would find a way to sleep.
What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
I am already into it but if time and money were not an issue, I would have the best gear for fishing and a professional guide to take me to the fish!
What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
Jump out of a plane. It is one of the things that I have checked off my bucket list.
What was one of the most interesting/best concerts you’ve been to?
NIN, Cher, Garth Brooks, and Rob Zombie were all great concerts!
Why did you decide to do the work you are doing now?
I originally started my career in accounting and although I loved working with numbers all day, there was something missing. I had the opportunity to move into Human Resources and I accepted. I enjoy people, making a difference, changing lives, developing relationships, and being an influential leader to make positive changes. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to do so.
