What’s your favorite work moment so far? We do a lot of work with our education partners. One of my favorite things is to start the day in an elementary school classroom. There is so much energy. Teachers in that age group are amazing. I love seeing the students when something clicks and they are able to identify a new letter or read the sentence that has been a struggle for them. Their minds are always soaking in information and they’re full of questions.

How do you take your coffee or tea? Coffee. Strong. Black (no sugar).

What’s your favorite book? There’s no way I can answer this with just one title.

What’s on your bucket list? This is such a long list…travel mostly, Galapagos, Alaska, and Delaware are at the top…can’t explain Delaware…it’s just there.
