Favorite place to travel: “I have had the opportunity to travel the world both professionally and personally and at this point in our lives we have no interest in leaving North America, there are so many beautiful places to visit across the U.S. and Canada, and you can find any weather you like…fresh crisp winter air of the north and sunny beach weather in the south (I prefer the latter!)”

What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?  “I was walking with several co-workers to lunch when suddenly I screamed at the top of my lungs when what looked like a squirrel fell on my shoulder and landed by my feet. I was so embarrassed to find out that it was my clip-on ponytail that fell out. My co-workers called me rat head and wouldn’t let me live it down for weeks. At least I laughed along with them!”
