What is your morning routine like?
I'm an early riser. I typically go to the gym or run outside prior to coming into work.
How do you take your caffeine?
I prefer coffee, but don't mind tea at times too!
Do you pack a lunch or go out?
pack! I'm unbelievable boring when it comes to my lunches. I pack the same thing everyday. Just ask some of my lunch-mates about my little salad fork ;) I will admit that I can't pass up pizza whenever it's ordered in the office though! That's one of my favorite foods on the planet and can't help but indulge when it's offered to me.
What do you like most about your job?
The people! Everyone is so pleasant and easy to get along with. I'm extremely thankful that everyone in my department is so helpful and patient as I continue to learn my new position.
What do you like the most about being in the insurance industry?
How diverse it is and how there is always something new to learn no matter how long you have worked in the industry.
What is your favorite chore?
Favorite chore? Sounds like an oxymoron to me. I dislike all chores and only do them out of necessity.
For stress relief you:
workout, run, or read.
Not everyone knows I:
accomplished my marathon goal in 2018 when I ran my first one while participating in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC. It was such an amazingly inspirational event that I couldn't help but sign up for it again in 2019 when I helped raise money to run for the Semper Fi Fund Team. I was pleasantly surprised how much better I did my 2nd time too! I did get in to run it again in 2020, however had to defer until 2021 due to Covid-19. I just wasn't feeling the same type of motivation to sign up for the virtual marathon. The thought a of running 26.2 miles alone around my neighborhood wasn't something that sounded too appealing to me. It's helpful to run with others and have wonderful spectators and marines cheering you at the end when you are just praying your legs don't cramp or give out before crossing the finish line!
How I ended up in Western Pensylvania:
I was born and raised here!
Your passions in life:
My friends and family :)
If you could do anything at all, what would it be?
Professional Athlete. While I was a soccer player all through high school, college and in many leagues until a couple years ago. I was nowhere near the professional level. I thoroughly enjoyed the training, practice, working with my teammates and the feeling I got before each and every game. I'm more interested in the preparation and love of the sport itself, but wouldn't mind the money that could come from it too ;)
Do you have any pets?
No, but I am a dog lover! I grew up with dogs and refer to my parent's dogs as my furry siblings.
I am addicted to:
watching The Big Bang Theory, listening to the Dan Patrick Show podcast, running and lifting weights.
