  • Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA — I am a huge Steelers football fan.
  • I was voted most artistic in my high school class.
  • In my spare time, I teach kickboxing and boot camp at a local gym. My husband and I also play a lot of soccer in the leagues across the DC Metro Area.
  • I love to travel but have a mild fear of flying, which has made working as a consultant an interesting career choice.
