Do you have any pets, and what is your favorite animal?
We recently rescued two kittens from a local adoption center, who are a fun and adorable addition to our family. My favorite animal, however, is the elephant.
Have you visited an excellent museum?
My oldest son is very interested in dinosaurs! We visited the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum in Los Angeles, the National History Museum of Los Angeles County, and most recently, the Field Museum in Chicago.
What is something interesting we would not learn about you from your resume alone?
I have gone skydiving! I went with my now husband on my 18th birthday. Now that I am older and have children, I cannot imagine ever doing that again. But I’m glad I experienced it at 18!
