What do you love most about your job?
The opportunity to grow and be challenged constantly – it keeps me engaged and consistently learning.
What is your favorite spa treatment and why?
Packages of facials and body treatments because it creates an incredible experience from head to toe.
Do you have any unusual skills?
Convincing myself every day is a cheat day in regard to my diet.
What would you name your boat if you had one?
I would name it Dory from “Finding Nemo” because if I owned a boat I’d probably get lost at sea.
What is something on your desk that you couldn’t live without?
My 35-inch computer screen – it makes all things possible.
If you opened a day spa, what would you name it?
Rêve – which means “dream” in French. Every experience at a spa should put you into a dream-like state.

Younger? Are you saying I’m getting old? Honestly, a brain surgeon, but that didn’t quite pan out.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
Warning: No filter.
What skill would you like to master?
Being thrilled with office and clerical work.
What are some small things that make your day better?
Seeing my goofy dogs, eating good chocolate, having gluten-free options on the menu, sunshine, and seeing nature.
What is your spirit animal?
Which superhero do you secretly want to be?
It’s no secret. Mariah Carey. She’s a superhero, right?
What’s the best invention of all time?
The internet. It has impacted our industry so much and virtually revolutionized how we do everything in the world.
