Outside of work, I love to game! I play all sorts of games, ranging from board games to competing with my friends in Nintendo Switch Sports. I’m never one to decline an opportunity to play a new game.

I also love to play and listen to music. I have been learning keyboard for about 5 years now, and I have just recently picked up the violin. New instruments fascinate me!

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I love learning languages! I have taken language classes every year since elementary school. I have 6 years of experience with French (although it’s been awhile…) and I am currently on track for a Japanese Minor.
