Q: Did you have a lovey/stuffy when you were little?

A: I had an obsession with the care bear, Bedtime Bear. I thought it was impossible to sleep if I didn't have Bedtime Bear to soothe me to sleep with its magical sleeping powers!


Q: Think back to when you were 8, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A: I wanted to be a veterinarian! I love animals and taking care of them is definitely a very rewarding experience.


Q: Do you have any morning rituals?

A: My morning ritual includes prayer, cuddling my dog, making some coffee & checking my emails! Cuddling my dog is my favorite for sure. He is super calm in the mornings!


Q: Who is your very favorite Disney character and why?

A: My favorite Disney character is Belle! I love books just as much as she does & I love how kind and sweet she is. I like her character so much that I named my daughter Belle Rose!


Q: What country would you love to visit and why?

A: I'd love to visit Japan! I am a huge fan of anime and video games so Japan would be an absolute dream to visit with my husband & kiddos!


Q: What sport/outdoor activity do you thoroughly enjoy?

A: I love to hike! Hiking and exploring different state parks is my favorite. I love the trees, plants, animals, rocks, all the cool natural stuff we encounter.


Q: What did you name your first car?

A: My first car (and still my current car) is a dark blue Mustang and I named her Ashe from my favorite character from the video game Overwatch.


Q: What is your favorite non-traditional holiday?

A: My favorite non-traditional holiday is Star Wars day. (May the 4th be with you.) I am a big Star Wars fan and I have to watch at least one of the movies on that day.


Q: Where did you honeymoon?

A: We didn't have an official honeymoon but when we got married, we did a pretty epic trip through many east coast states and had really yummy food in each place and did a lot of sightseeing. Like in Philadelphia, we had philly cheese steaks. In New York, we had NY style pizza. In Maryland, we had crabs! We visited & explored 7 states in less than a week!


Q: Who do people often tell you that you look like?

A: Kids here at school have given me the nickname, Ms. Ariel because of my red hair :) Although I don't think I look much like Ariel haha
