What do you like to do in your free time? 

I'm kind of a connoisseur of pop culture and I love watching movies and streaming stuff. I love keeping up to date on new releases with the box office. And then when we're outside of busy season, I've been trying to get back into reading for the fun of it. I took a little bit of a break after passing the CPA exam. I love reading historical fiction, so things that are plausible, but didn't really happen.

Is there any advice someone has given that has made an impact on your life? 

Being my own advocate is probably the best piece of advice I've ever been given. Because sometimes you need to blow your own horn and draw attention to what you've accomplished. And it's not bragging, it's just trying just to remind people about what you're doing when you think it’s really important.
