WHAT 

Movies: Comedy, RomComs, Feel-Good & Political. Forrest Gump is my favorite of all time. I stay away from horror and scary movies because I like sleep!
Music: Music Major in college so I like everything pretty much; minus country (sorry!) I do enjoy Jack Johnson, Sheppard, Jason Mraz, Ben Rector, John Splithoff and John Mayer, Adele, Whitney Houston, Lizzo and my queen & guilty pleasure is CELINE DION
Travel: Studied abroad in Paris, France in college. Did a Summer Opera program in Rome, Italy and have traveled to 5/7 Continents and plan on doing 7/7 by the time I’m 40.
Television: The West Wing & Will & Grace are on constant cycles. Love anything funny and political satire.
Sports: SF 49ers, SF Giants, GS Warriors/Portland Blazers and the Portland Timbers.
Hobbies: Long Walks on the Beach (no…really, I do), Netflix & Chill = Passing out on the couch, working out (free weights, running & Pilates are some of my favorites), amateur foodie, community service (especially work for the economically disadvantaged), cleaning (no joke) and unplugging myself from the digital world.
