On the car ride to work, what do you listen to?
News. I know. But it is actually a wonderful way to get my brain up and running, thinking critically and preparing for the day.
What was the very first job you ever had?
Subway at Paradise Valley mall in high school. It was amazing opportunity to for a high school student to work at the mall close to home. Although, I cannot eat Subway anymore.

If your coworkers were to give you an office nickname, what would that be? Why?
Tiffy. That has always been the one I was given.
For Green River’s annual talent show (this doesn’t actually exist), what hidden talent would you showcase for everyone?
I would showcase a range of quilting projects that my daughter and I have worked on over the years. Although, I might have to track some of them down.
