What is something about yourself that might surprise others?

In high school I played rugby. My school didn’t have a girls team so I played on the boys team. Rugby is an amazing team sport and it is so much fun to play!

What’s a fear you are proud to have overcome?

I have greatly improved at public speaking…for the most part.

What do you like most about working at ELS?

My coworkers! Everyone here is helpful, friendly, smart, and it’s a big family oriented environment!

What is the worst advice you have ever been given?

“World War Z is not a scary movie, you’ll be fine”…except that I have an unnatural fear of zombies and I had nightmares for months about that zombie that has the twitchy head and does the clicky thing with his tongue!
