What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was a kid, I never had a clear, consistent answer to this question. From kindergarten all the way through grad school, I have wanted to be everything from an entomologist to a performer on Broadway to a professor to a physical therapist. In college, I actually changed my major eight times.

If you had your own talk show, who would be the first three guests you’d like to interview?

Cody Rigsby, Andy Cohen and Bethenny Frankel (if you haven’t noticed a theme, I have a serious Peloton and Bravo obsession).

Where is your dream vacation destination? Family at Disney

I love to travel, so I don’t have a specific destination in mind. However, my dream vacation would be a Bravo-sponsored vacation. Everyone from the Housewives (any city) to the cast of Vanderpump Rules gets to go to the coolest places with the most exclusive access and a crew to plan and document everything.

Do you have a secret talent or a hobby?

I have a knack for hearing pieces of songs within other songs. As an example, “Don’t Go Knockin’ on My Door” by Britney Spears is basically a combination of “Don’t Want You Back” by the Backstreet Boys and “No Scrubs” by TLC. Seriously, listen to all three in this order: No Scrubs, Don’t Want You Back, Don’t Go Knockin’ on My Door.

What drew you to the field of PR and communications?

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve always been a bit of a dabbler with a specific talent for storytelling. Working in PR and communications, specifically on the agency side, has allowed me to explore all of my interests while leveraging my strongest skills.

What do you find most interesting about cybersecurity or technology?

My favorite thing about working in cybersecurity is being surrounded by brilliant people who are trying to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.
