What would you like to be your greatest accomplishment?

I want people to remember me as a good person. I want to be the reason someone's day was better, not worse.

What is one thing you just can't resist?

I can't pass up a donut. If I am offered donuts, I will always eat one or two or maybe even 5! That's what I usually get myself for a treat when I go grocery shopping.

What's the weirdest job you have ever had?

I haven't had any weird jobs, but working at my family's convenience store growing up and throughout college was VERY interesting at times, and I interacted with some people who are best described as unique...

You're hosting a dinner party. Who are the 3 people, living or dead, you would invite, and why?

1) Helmuth Hubener who was an LDS teenager in Nazi Germany and led a resistance movement in his hometown. 2) Lady Jane Grey who was the teenage queen of England for 9 days before she was imprisoned and eventually beheaded. 3) I would also want to invite one of my ancient ancestors because I have many who were part of the French and English nobility and there are others who were Vikings. I think it would be so cool to hear the first-hand accounts of these people and how their lives compare to the legends surrounding them.

What is the greatest challenge you have overcome so far in your life?

Shyness! As a kid I was so shy that I rarely talked to people and even now I am known as the quiet one in my family. My mom was worried about me becoming a teacher because she wasn't sure I was outgoing enough to do it.
