What attracted you to HCP?

I met Katie Hall and everything fell into place. I love the business, the people, and the firm culture.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Spending time with family and friends, biking, and hiking.

Little known fact(s) about me:

Growing up, I loved to sew and made most of my clothes. I used to stay up until all hours making new pieces, but always stopped at the hem (I hate hemming!). My amazing Mom would finish the hem before I woke up in the morning just so I had a new outfit to wear.

Ask me about:

Food: Who can resist an In-N-Out burger animal style?

Spotify New Music Friday: My son is schooling me on some great new songs/groups

Curling: You too should know sweeping as a sport
