How long have you lived in Hampton Roads? About 6 years.
What’s your biggest pet peeve? Really bad parkers.
What’s your favorite Hampton Roads restaurant? Pasha in Ghent. I always get the lentil cake wrap.
If you had to sing karaoke right now, what song would you pick? “Can I Kick It” by A Tribe Called Quest.
What would you change in your city if you were mayor for one day? I would improve the ability of public transportation.
What’s your favorite TV show? Downtown Abbey.
If you had to pick a different college major, what would you choose instead? I was an elementary education major. Honestly there’s nothing else I really want to do. Maybe I would start my infant and toddler specialization earlier.

Describe one of your proudest moments. I would have to say it was graduating from grad school while I was working full time.
