What is your favorite city you’ve traveled to?
My favorite city was definitely Cork, Ireland. I got to travel with my best friend, who is stationed in London. We saw Blarney Castle, the fern gardens, and the most magnificent views. It was such an unbelievably green and lush place, it was like a fairy tale. I also had the strange experience of talking to some cows and they all gathered around the fence to listen. 5/5 stars.

Where did you go to school and what did you study?
I went to CSULB and have a B.S. in Kinesiology with a focus in fitness. I was a personal trainer for 7 years and wanted to know everything I could about how the body functioned. I still enjoy working out, and the main takeaway for me is that I have an earnest desire to help others, and understand how things operate.

What is your favorite book?
My favorite series is the Fifth Season trilogy by N.K Jemisin. I’m a huge fan of dystopian fiction and magic. It addresses a changing world and prejudice against the different types of people and how they must work together to survive.
