If you had not chosen your current job, what job would you choose and why?

I’m very lucky to love my job and at this point I wouldn’t want to do anything else. As a child, my first professional aspiration was to serve ice cream at Baskin-Robbins. I also had a strong interest in marine biology and working with dolphins before finding my passion for helping children with disabilities live their lives to the fullest.

Recent Vacations: My husband and I just got back from an amazing trip to Switzerland with our 14 year old niece that convinced me to go hang gliding!

When I want to relax:

I grab my Kindle and head to the tub to read and soak.

Favorite movie:

I have two favorite films, “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” (Gene Wilder version) and “Love Actually”.

Favorite quote:

I also have two: “Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says, ‘I’ll try again tomorrow’” — Mary Anne Radmacher; and “Knowing that one life has breathed easier because you have lived.” It is to have succeeded”, — Ralph Waldo Emerson.
