Where are you from? I am originally from Jacksonville, Florida (GO JAGUARS!) but I moved to Atlanta from Sarasota, Florida.

As you know, we play Pandora in the office. If you could pick the station, what would you play? Picking a Pandora station is always tough for me because I really like a ton of different types of music.  My go-to stations are Yacht Rock and 80’s.  I grew up listening to the songs on these stations and I love them!  Also, Ray LaMontagne is a great station that I often listen to in the mornings.

What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery? If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is buy a 1970 Chevelle SS (preferably red with black stripes or black with red stripes).  I don’t know much about cars but I have always loved this car.  I would also buy a house on the water with an awesome pool.  Whatever I didn’t use on my house and car, I would donate to some of my favorite charities and then save/invest the remainder.

If Preparis was a TV show, which character– from any sitcom, drama, or reality show would represent you? If Preparis were a TV show, I would be a mix of characters.  I would have: –          The fierceness and determination of Alicia Florrick from The Good Wife –          The sassiness of Suzanne Sugarbaker from Designing Women (one of my most favorite shows EVER) –          The pep and excitement of Leslie Knope from Parks & Recreation –          The management skills of Kris Jenner from Keeping Up with the Kardashians (You may be rolling your eyes but, let’s be honest, anyone that can manage, promote, and have parties, weddings and other large events for that crazy train, deserves a medal.) –          And a dash of Kim Kardashian’s ugly cry for good measure.
