Q: What is your favorite thing about your career?
A: It's not a 9-5 job. I’m not cut out for that, not at all.
Q: What is your favorite family holiday tradition?
A: As a family, we used to gift each other ridiculous T-shirts at Christmas with funny slogans and sayings on them.
Q: What are some of your hobbies?
A: Working out, definitely! Watching sports, and honestly, that’s about it!
Q: If you were a superhero, what power would you have?
A: Mind control.
Q: What is your favorite game, or sport, to watch or play?
A: College football. Period. I am obsessed with it - I pay attention every year. I follow Ohio State —that’s my team —and every year they’re competitive so that makes it fun to watch.
Q: What is your proudest accomplishment?
A: Actually, I trained a patient who had recently undergone back surgery – he couldn’t move much because he'd been sedentary for six months – we were able to get him to walk again and improve his functionality.
Q: How would your friends describe you?
A: Class clown type; appear low-key when you first meet me, but the more you start getting me to talk, the sillier I become.
