If you had to use one word to describe yourself, what would it be?

Determined. When I put my mind to something, there’s usually no stopping me.

Where do you go for a weekend getaway?

Cape Cod. My parents’ house is definitely my “happy place,” and the place where I feel most at peace.

What do you listen to while working?

Usually podcasts. I’ve listened to almost every true crime podcast out there, but I also enjoy Radiolab and WSJ’s The Future of Everything. If I’m listening to music, it’s most likely a song by Coldplay.

What valuable lesson did you learn from your parents?

I would say there are two core lessons that go hand in hand; the value of hard work and the importance of family. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without those lessons.

What’s the most important part of your morning routine?

My morning run by the water. There’s no better way to start the day.

Beer or wine?

Wine all the way. My go-to order will always be Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay.

What's your Kryptonite?

Peanut Butter. I don’t buy it unless I’m prepared to eat entirely too much of it.
