What is your background?
I graduated from Ohio University, where I studied Management Information Systems and focused on how a business can utilize technology to achieve its goals. For two years during college, I interned for a Fortune 500 Information Systems department where I focused on business process and systems improvements. After graduation, I spent an exciting year at PwC in Forensics Technology consulting in Chicago, IL, where I gained analytical and technical skills participating in high profile fraud investigations.

Do you have any pets currently?
My adorable fluff ball, Bella, is happily living with my parents until I live somewhere that allows pets.

What is your favorite pet-related memory?
During family vacations, we leave our garage door open just wide enough for our kitty, Bella, to go in and out as she pleases. When we came home a week later, we found a stranger cat had moved into our house to keep Bella company! Chasing the guest kitty around and releasing her back outside took our entire family and was such a goofy, uncoordinated sight that we still laugh about today.

What’s your favorite thing about Embrace?
I love being greeted each morning by wagging tails of my furry friends and the friendly faces of my human friends! I also really enjoy our focus on Wellness – we take yoga and Bananagram breaks during the day to stay refreshed and relaxed.

What is your favorite quote?
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” -- Mark Twain

Anything else we should know about you?
I love anything chocolatey, enjoy local food and entertainment, and am an avid runner (mainly to justify my crazy sweet tooth!).
