Years at Tech/Years in current role:
A little over a year – I started in Nov of 2017.

Walking on the Atlanta Beltline is my absolute favorite!

If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?
I am always excited to visit anywhere new, I want to go everywhere! Our team is headed to New Orleans this fall for a conference (the North American Association of Summer Sessions conference), so I am really excited about that; although, I have been to New Orleans before.
I have favorite quotes, but a favorite word that I use all the time (my students will confirm!) - magical!
