If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Barack Obama. The amazing impact he has made on our world has let us know that we must keep fighting the good fight.
What’s the best part of your job so far?
At AJAC I love that I have supportive coworkers that are available to inform, advise and work with me.
What’s the best joke you’ve ever heard?
My college roommates 7 year old sister told us a version of the below joke 30 years ago and I still tell it.
A duck walks into a store and says, “Give me some Chapstick.”
The clerk says, “How are you going to pay for that?”
“Oh, just put it on my bill.”
If you could bring one musician back from the dead, who would it be and why?
Bob Marley. His music is timeless. Just think what else he could have shared with us.
If you could live in a book, TV show or movie, what would it be?
Californication. Hank Moody seems like a blast.
