If you didn’t work in marketing/advertising, what other career path would you choose?
I would open a bakery and coffee shop.
Have you ever met anyone famous? If so, who?
I met Brian Urlacher (former Chicago Bears linebacker), which was pretty exciting. I also was just moments away from meeting Kevin Durant last weekend in Dallas — of course my flight was the first to leave, so everyone I was with met him in the hotel elevator, and I was already heading to my flight. It was a bummer.
If you could only wear one color for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Although my favorite color is green, I think I would have to go with black because it’s appropriate in most situations.
Give us a fun or weird fact about you that not many people know.
I am terrified of monkeys and obsessed with elephants.
