What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy cooking and spending time with friends, my dogs, and family.  I also play a variety of sports including: softball, hockey, dodgeball, volleyball, and football.  If I have time I like to play video games as well.

What inspires you?

Answering questions and solving problems, especially problems that affect the community.

Why are you in non-profit work?  What emotional reasons?

I like working for a mission that I believe in and that benefits other people, as well as having a positive impact on yourself.  I think that is more prevalent in non-profit work.

Who is a hero of yours?

My parents.  They complement each other nicely, which encouraged me to be well-rounded.

What’s something quirky about you?

I enjoy fantasy football and have won 2 championships (out of 4)!  I beat my brother the first year in the championship and my husband this most recent time.

What’s in your coffee?

Nothing.  I don’t drink coffee or consume any caffeine.

I will never be seen without…

My dogs, unless there are rules against it.

Why is CCNY’s mission important to you?

It’s important to me to help others and using valid and reliable data to solve problems that matter.
