What are your favorite activities when you are not working?
Spending time with friends exploring the city. Although I am originally from New Orleans I have spent much of my adult life living in other states. There is still so much of this city that I have not experienced.
What advice would you give to someone who's considering finishing their degree, or starting for the first time as an adult?
Don't be afraid. You're more prepared than you think you are.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
