What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
I earned a Girl Scout Gold Award during my senior year of high school. It is the Girl Scout's highest award. The things I learned through the award steps have provided a base of leadership and confidence to help me achieve higher things throughout my adult life.
Do you have a favorite activity or place to go in Columbus, Ohio?
My family likes to hike at the Preservation Parks in Delaware, Ohio, and we enjoyed searching for letterboxes when my children were younger. Our favorite place in Columbus would be the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. We have visited many times, attended Zoo Kids and Zoo Camp events, and stayed overnight as a family.
Do you have a favorite book, movie, tv-show, or music group?
The movie Hidden Figures has become one of my favorites. My favorite school subjects are math and science. Learning about the roles that three women played at NASA in helping launch humankind into space was very inspiring and interesting.
