What would you be doing if you weren’t at your current job?
I would be a critically acclaimed food writer.
What’s one word you would use to describe yourself?
Fill in the blank. “If you really knew me, you’d know ____”
I’m obsessed with food, especially dessert, and l love to try new restaurants any chance I get.
What super power would you like to have?
It might be a tie between teleportation and flying.
What would a “perfect” day look like to you?
A perfect day would be waking up early and going to BodyPump at 24 first thing. Then I would hang out at a coffee shop in Hillcrest or North Park reading “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me.” I’d go shopping at some cute boutiques until lunch rolled around and pop into Snooze for lunch. I think I’d just hang out with some friends for the rest of the day and go to dinner, then end the night with a glass of wine and dessert. Doesn’t get much better than that.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the past year?
Might sound like a cliché but that everything happens for a reason – also that timing is everything.
Best vacation you’ve had?
I went to Italy with my family this past summer and it was amazing! We went to Florence and Rome and now I just want to travel everywhere.
What’s your most embarrassing moment at work?
It’s more sad than embarrassing, but my grandma died last year and I was at work when I found out. I was crying on the stairwell outside the front door of our office and one of my coworkers came out because he heard my blubbering. He saw me look a hot mess – literally mascara running down my face and my ugly crying face.
Can I quote myself? “Sassy – not just a word, it’s a lifestyle.”
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would be cast as you?

I like to exercise, try new restaurants and coffee shops, watch ungodly amounts of Hulu and Netflix, hang out with friends, and explore San Diego.
