What’s the best part of your job?

I enjoy the opportunity to connect with local businesses and learn more about the area.

When you’re not at work, what’s your favorite thing to do for fun?

I love reading and trying interesting foods – either in my own kitchen or at one of the many unique restaurants that Charlottesville has to offer! One of my favorite gifts I’ve ever received was a homemade pasta maker.

Name one thing about you that most people don’t know or wouldn’t expect.

I am a terrible singer but love karaoke.
