What’s the most non-traditional job you’ve ever had?
For one summer when I was 19 I spent 2 months working at a hospital taking pictures of newborns. Having new parents watch me the entire time was beyond stressful!
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about giving a voice to those that don’t have one, especially animals. My family has 4 dogs all rescues ranging in ages. I have been volunteering with the Pasadena Humane Society for the last 8 years. They are a wonderful organization.
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
When I was 18 I took a 3 week trip to Central America to do volunteer work. It was the first trip without my parents and a major culture shock when I arrived there. You really start to appreciate the small amenities you have on a day to bay basis.
What sports star would you most like to meet?
I would like to meet Ronda Rousey. I admire the discipline and passion she brings to her craft. She inspires me every day to work harder on all aspects of my life.
What are your favorite books?
Daughter of Fortune, The Historian, and State of Fear
