Favorite line from a movie? “So, you’re telling me there’s a chance.”

People would be surprised to know:

I have family from Las Vegas, but have no luck winning anything when visiting 😊

I’ve lived in Japan two sperate times

I’m slightly color blind

My favorite show is “Friends” no shame.

Hobbies outside of work? I love to travel, spend time with my daughters, exercise, attend sporting events and concerts, work with my hands for home projects, read personal growth books and sometimes you’ll find me watching a good movie with my extra pepperoni, pepperoni pizza.
