If you could be on a reality show, what would it be? Would you want to play the hero or the villain?
Amazing Race, and neither.... I'm there to have fun and collect the passport stamps.
When you were 16, what did you want to be when you grew up?
At 15, I had been elected to a state leadership position for a national youth organization and fell in love with the annual conference. I knew then and there that this is what I would be doing as a career.

Were you named after anyone?
My middle name comes from my great-aunt on my mother's side.
