I’ve been loving Sad Bops on Spotify. I’m not sad, just boppin’, I promise. 

Fun fact about yourself.  

Darren Criss told me I looked like Ginny Weasley when I was younger. Also, I won a rooster crowing contest at the state fair. 4-H is wild.

This is my dog, Berkeley. I also have two cats, Beauregard and George, but they’re introverts and declined to be featured.

What do you add to the team outside of work?

I bring the podcast and book recommendations… so, homework? 😉
