Where is your favorite travel destination?
Pre-Covid, my top vacation spots included Mexico, Europe, and anywhere Southwest Airlines flew. I had plans to travel to Asia for my brother-in-law’s wedding in 2020, but after their borders got shut down, I instead took a 6-week West Coast road trip in a renovated RV with my family. We visited friends, cousins, and places we used to live. We stayed at beaches, in the forest, in people’s driveways, and everywhere in between. It is definitely an experience to drive your “condo on wheels” all over the West Coast, with a dog and baby no less!

What are your hobbies/interests outside of work?
Growing up in Arizona, swimming has always been one of my favorite summer activities. I also enjoy gardening and have been propagating succulents for the past year. I don’t know what I will do with all of them, but it is very satisfying to see a new plant come from a single leaf.
