What is the first place you are going to go that you are unable to go right now?  How do you decide just ONE place? I suppose to Target for a “quick errand” where I will endlessly roam the aisles, spend too much money and there will be NOTHING quick about it. Oh, and did I mention it will be WITHOUT my children and husband?

What is the funniest thing that has happened during a virtual meeting or call?  My daughter fell behind the TV stand directly behind me which knocked the TV and bookshelf over as a result! I was pretty frustrated at the time but looking back, it is pretty hilarious!

What is one positive that you didn’t expect from quarantine? The lack of rushing around constantly is allowing us to have more quality family time that is otherwise rare. I’ve also been able to get many things done around the house that I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

Tell me something about yourself that is not common knowledge or that someone would never guess! Some of you may already know this by now but I have 3 (used to have 4) metal plates in my face! Ask me why if you want to know! 😊 If that’s old news to you, something else is that I’m addicted to looking at houses for sale online!

What is the first place you are going to go when able that you are unable to now? Vacation… once given the green light I want to go to ALL of the places! We’ve postponed 3 trips at this point and are really looking forward to traveling again once it is safe to do so.

What is the funniest thing that has happened during a virtual meeting or call?  My son roared like a dinosaur during an entire call. Apparently working at Jurassic Park is my new normal.

What is one positive that you didn’t expect from quarantine?  The additional connections being made personally and at work. People have been more open to taking the time to talk and find ways to virtually connect. I’ve appreciated getting to know customers better and finding unique ways to use technology to stay connected.

Tell me something about yourself that is not common knowledge or that someone would never guess! I lived in Germany for a year when I was 4. My mom was born and raised in Germany so we went often. Now as an adult I do not get to go as often as I would like but my daughter has had a chance to go twice and this year was to be my sons first trip, looking forward to hopefully be able to take them again in 2021!
