On a Lighter Note

Do you have any hobbies?
My baking hobby recently became a small baking business called Buncha Munchies Bakery. I love creative challenges and am always trying new recipes. Cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and various types of bread (focaccia, naan, pretzels, etc.) are consistently on the menu. Lately, I have been excited to be participating in local farmers’ markets!

Do you have a favorite music group?
I cannot pick just one music group. I am an avid concertgoer and aim to attend at least ten shows a year! Rock is my favorite genre, and Ben Folds is one of my favorite artists to see live.

Do you have any favorite sports teams?
Other than my alma mater, Ohio State (Go Bucks!), my favorite teams include the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Guardians. The last time the Guardians were in the World Series was during my wedding. We set up a TV at the last minute to watch the game during our reception. Luckily, it was one of the games we won!
