When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a teacher. When I would come home from school, I would play in my room with a huge whiteboard and pretend to teach a class to imaginary students. This desire probably stemmed from all the amazing teachers that I was blessed to have while growing up.

A social cause you care deeply about and why?

I am deeply passionate about the environment and leaving this world a better place. Specifically, within that realm I am passionate about protecting our ocean environments and love being involved in beach cleanups in the local San Diego area and am always picking up trash when I am enjoying a beach day with friends. To me the ocean is a place where I go to for solace and to find peace, so it is important to me that these areas are protected, taken care of, and are left better than we found it.

If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?

I would love to be a travel guide and to take people on excursions to see the world!

You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?

My Grandma Geri because she passed away when I was young and I would love to pick her brain on some of the amazing places that she got to travel to during her lifetime. David Attenborough because he changed the world when it came to natural history documentation. Robin Williams because I grew up watching all of the movies he starred in.

In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)

Forever a student of life.
