Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.
I like to spend time with husband, friends, family and my fur-babies (we have a sweet rescue pup named Molly and a fat cat named Mimosa). I also have a life and style blog that keeps me pretty busy outside of work. I spend most nights and weekends creating and photographing content, attending an Atlanta event as a media rep, or searching for the next best product. It’s become semi-successful over the past year, so it’s cool to see it grow.
Q. What’s your dream travel destination, or favorite place you’ve ever traveled?

Reese Witherspoon can pull off my accent. Plus I always wanted to be Elle Woods when I grew up.
Q. What advice would you give to a new employee at Force?
HA! I still consider myself a new employee at Force. You have to ask questions! Everyone is super willing to help you, but you just have to make the effort and reach out. Also, take ALL the notes.
