Q: What hobbies do you like to do when not studying for classes?

A: I'm most excited about working the auctions and seeing all the behind the scenes work fall into place.


Q: What is your favorite family tradition?

Q: Where is your favorite place you have travelled to?

A: I recently traveled to England this summer. I got to be a true tourist in London which was an amazing experience for me. I also got to stay in a small village in the country side, which was gorgeous. I will definitely be going back soon.
