What is your favorite book of all time?
If I’m being perfectly honest, it’s Chicken Soup for the Shopper’s Soul.
What TV or movie character best exemplifies you and why?
Elle Woods from Legally Blonde, because I am energetic, persistent, and obsessed with the color pink. Reference the previous question for a deeper explanation.
What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?
Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett's popcorn?
Neither. My vote is for French fries.
The funniest thing to ever happen to you at Walker Sands was?
When a team-building lunch turned into rapid-fire Bridesmaids quotes and deeply personal questions about socks.
One thing people wouldn't know about you is?
I love to sing, I’m a pretty decent skier, and I’m no good at counting.
If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would you live?
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, without a doubt.
