  1. What’s your favorite thing to do in COMO?
    I love most to hang out downtown with my friends and catch up over cocktails. I also love catching a live show at The Blue Note too. The best nights are when I start out for just a happy hour with friends and it turns in to an accidental late night with a show at the Blue Note!
  2. Favorite font and why?
    Dude…I still don’t even know what a san serif is and how it’s different from the other serifs. So, my font knowledge is very small. I do like sticking with Calibri. I loathe Times New Roman because it represents the establishment.
  3. What is your greatest strength and why?
    I’m a maximizer. I love to discover and develop the strengths of those around me.
  4. Guilty pleasure?
    Cussing…a lot.
  5. Lifesaving item in your purse/bag/backpack?
    My cell phone. I could literally run my family, my company, my social life, my school, my finances, anything from it. I’m addicted to it. I don’t care what you think. No, I’m not admitting I have a problem.
  6. Best piece of advice you were ever given?
    You teach people how to treat you.
  7. Are you a plant killer or caretaker?
    I am a plant lifegiver and caretaker!! Side note: never gift your murderous team living things for Christmas ever again.
  8. Most bingeable TV show?
    Seriously, whatever it is that I’m watching at the time…I have a list in my phone of “must watch” shows when this conversation happens. It’s hard to pick just one. Some of my faves have been West Wing, The Americans, Game of Thrones.
  9. What kind of animal do you identify with?
    An owl…which is good because I have a giant one tattooed on my back. They seem to be able to see 360 degrees (which I wish I could do metaphorically), they represent wisdom (which I wish I had more of), they are known to be good parents (which I try really hard to do), and an owl is the mascot of the school from which I finally attained my college degree.
  10. Are you a Monica, Phoebe, or Rachel (from Friends) and why?
    Definitely Rachel. She never can seem to figure out her love life even though everyone else could see it. She had the ability to be serious and funny. And she wrote super long letters that people fall asleep reading. Just like me!!
  11. Biggest pet peeve?
    Serious one: Lack of self-awareness and ability to take personal responsibility. Irrational one: listening to people breathe wrong. Wait!! My kids tapping me on the arm repeatedly until I give them my attention. It’s always followed up with “WWWWHHHHATTTT??!!!”
  12. What actor would portray you in a movie?
    Amy Schumer. Definitely Amy Schumer.
