Fun Facts: I have 2 Emmy Awards, 2 Golden Mike Awards and a company where I worked received 2 Webby Awards, but if I was going to give myself an award, it would be for attracting the most amazing community of friends! When I was little, I lived in a subterranean house covered in grass (like hobbits or rabbits). I recently started volunteering in middle and high schools for the acclaimed Challenge Day organization which fosters social-emotional well-being in kids, communities and businesses through experiential exercises that unify. I received my SCUBA certification to do a shark dive on a trip to the Bahamas hosted by actor Woody Harrelson and his family. Also, I grew up in the small Oregon town where The Goonies was filmed and met some cast members but, alas, was not an extra.
