1. Favorite TV show?
The Office, Dexter, How I Met Your Mother and anything on the Food Network.
2. Athletic involvements?
I primarily played soccer growing up and played in high school. When I went to college at Miami University, I wanted to try something new, so I showed up at the women’s rugby practice. I played four years for the Miami University Women’s Rugby Club and had the time of my life.
3. Where is your favorite place to visit/travel?
I studied abroad in Australia and Sydney has to be one of my favorite cities in the world. It was so clean and modern, and the people of Australia are great.
4. What is the best thing you’ve ever eaten?
I’ve been able to eat a lot of amazing foods, but these are the ones that really stand out: the curry mussels from Bistro Bis in Washington, D.C.; the pomegranate crusted bass and goat cheese risotto from Middle Grounds Grill in Treasure Island, Fla.; and the garlic chips from Chatham Tap in Indianapolis.
5. What is the most memorable sporting event you’ve attended?
My family and I went to the semifinals of the 1999 Women’s World Cup in Palo Alto, Ca. It was a great match that pushed the U.S. team to the historic final game. But even more, it was such a defining moment for women’s sports; it was awesome to be a part of something that big.
6. What is your favorite possession?
A painting of the Sydney Harbor that I bought at a street fair in Bondi Beach, Australia.
7. What is the best advice ever given to you?

Being a hard worker, a thoughtful and supportive friend and making people laugh.
12. What was your favorite musical group growing up?
I have lots of early memories of singing and dancing to Wilson Phillips in my living room. “Hold On” is still a game changer for me. That song can turn around your whole day.
