I am happiest when… spending quality time with family and friends.
Where did you grow up and why aren’t you there now?
I grew up in Bangs, a small town in central Texas and moved away to attend college.
What’s one thing that’s still on your bucket list?
I would like to visit all 50 states. Luckily, as a kid, many of our summer family vacations involved road-tripping to various states, so I’m over half-way there!
What would be impossible for you to give up?
Probably Dr. Pepper. I drink a Dr. Pepper every morning instead of a cup of coffee. Since Dr. Peppers are not as popular everywhere as they are here in Texas, I’ve been known to pack some in my suitcase when traveling…which can make packing for trips challenging, but well worth it!
