Tell us something about yourself that might surprise your friends. (Your hidden talent)

I can play the piano backwards.

Describe your ideal night at The Yards.

I’ve already had it. Dinner at Osteria Morini, a walk over the bridge in the snow and a stand still looking over the water and soaking it all in. I really like to just enjoy the moment.

If you weren’t a ________ for a living, what would you be?

A Membership Director – I’d be doing exactly what I’m doing now, just on a larger scale for VIDA’s Corporate Office.

What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

Ran the Cupid’s Undie Run in my skivvies

What’s the biggest misperception about living/working in DC (or the yards)?

That you’re surrounded by military personnel in uniform and it takes forever to get here. I’m at work in less than 20 minutes by metro from NW and all I see around me are familiar, friendly faces.

You’re planning a summer river-side picnic — what’s in the picnic basket and what activities would be had?

Almond Butter, Apples, Chicken Salad Wraps and a bottle of rosé. Run around the neighborhood or play soccer with friends on the lawn, and then sit down and enjoy.

What phrases or words do you wish you could never hear again?

“Um” “YOLO” “I can’t”

When it comes to neighborhood food, are you liberal, conservative or independent?

Haha liberal is the only word that I feel comfortable putting in a sentence with food.
