  3. What is your biggest fear? Heights and scary movies

  4. What is your favorite family vacation? Cruise - my husband and I do not have kids so we choose a couples cruise with 5 other couples on Royal Caribbean and we traveled to the following islands (St. Thomas, St Maarten, Bahamas). 2nd couples trip in June 2021 to Breathless Riviera Cancun

  6. What really makes you angry? Wasted potential and favoritism

  7. What fictional character do you most relate to? Olivia Pope on Scandal - she is a hard working overachiever business woman and very motivational. Gets the job done and her wardrobe is everything

  8. What motivates you to work hard? The great feeling of completion and being able to let others see what a great job I have done.

Pursuit of Happiness as I found a job that I’m happy at, and even though this movie has sad moments, shows that with determination and never giving up you can succeed.
