1. What is your first memory of the Internet?
Growing up, I had three older siblings and only one computer. This usually left me watching my siblings having fun on the computer.

2. Favorite memory of the lake? What does being on the water mean to you?
Growing up in Iowa, I spent a lot of time boating and hanging out on the lakes in Okoboji with friends. My favorite memory of the lake is watching the fireworks from the boat every 4th of July. Independence Day is a very big deal in Okoboji, so the fireworks are always quite impressive.

3. How many cups of coffee do you drink per day?
I try to cut myself off by 11AM, so that generally results in 3 cups.

4. Most used app on your phone?
AccuWeather. It’s a little ridiculous how often I feel the need to check the weather.

5. Childhood dream job?
I lived in my pink tutu as a child, so I was convinced that life as a ballerina would be the perfect job for me.

6. Snack you could live on?
Quesadillas. My quesadilla maker is by far the most used appliance in my kitchen.

6. What's your favorite social media platform?
Instagram. I could scroll for days looking at all the design inspiration and cute kittens.
