About Me

Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio

A class that changed my life: A class that changed my life was Economics 101. I was dead set on being an Econ major and going onto making 6 figures on Wall Street. Economics 101 helped me see that I had no interest whatsoever in that class or that career. It was one of the first times I had to make an adult decision between passion and money. I ended up switching my major to Psychology and set myself on a pathway that ultimately led to smaller paychecks but way more happiness.

One piece of advice: One piece of advice I would give is to try hard not to live with regrets. Life gets messy and you will make mistakes, but in my experience living with regrets from the past only stops you from appreciating all the blessings you currently have in the present.

Favorite Movie: I absolutely love Four Christmases with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn. 

Favorite TV show: Currently my favorite TV show is Wentworth, but my all-time fav will forever be Law & Order SVU!

Favorite quote: My favorite quote is “You live and you learn, just make sure you laugh and you love along the way.”
