Something unique about you summed up in one sentence: 

There isn't a food I don't like, and that can be a blessing and a curse. 

Your favorite city in the world is...and why? 

Positano, Italy. It's like stepping back in time and into a dream all at the same time. So much to experience with its archeological sites, impressive hillside architecture, breathtaking crystal blue waters and coffee, wine or pizza at every turn. 

In your spare time (or if you had spare time), you would absolutely do this:

Set up an easel and start painting. I secretly want to be an artist.

Share an interesting fact or a special skill: 

I am always up for an adventure or learning a new hobby. I'll try almost anything once. 

Your ultimate celebrity dinner party guest list would include...

A filmmaker, comedian, musician, inspirational leader. Too many to specifically name but each would provide interesting table conversation and entertainment! 

Long-term personal or professional goal: 

Learn Italian and immerse myself in my country of origin. 

Favorite TV show:

Any home improvement show. I love updating and renovating homes.

What is your favorite way to give back to the community? 

Junior Achievement volunteer. Fun to put my economics degree to work by helping kids prepare for economic success in the global economy.
