What is your favorite movie?
When it comes to a favorite movie it's pretty much anything with Cary Grant... serious ones like "North by Northwest", "Notorious" and "An Affair to Remember" to silly ones like "My Favorite Wife", "The Philadelphia Story" or "Arsenic and Old Lace".
Do you have a personal motto or quote that inspires you?
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain
In other words... go for it!
If you could interview one person, living or deceased who would it be?
I would love to interview and tour the White House with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. I grew up watching her survive such a difficult time and she did it all with such grace. Although most people just remembered "Jackie" for her iconic fashion, I believe Jackie could give great insight into the happenings of the day and was making her opinions known as First Lady… but it was saved for behind the scenes.
What is your favorite way to spend a day off?
I love to not necessarily have a plan at all and take a little road trip without any agenda.
What sports team are you a big fan of?
When it comes to sports I am a hardcore Packer fan. My mom grew up in Wisconsin and my cousin married Packer Mike McCoy (defensive tackle #76). When it comes to college football though I am a huge Ohio State Buckeye fan. I grew up in Columbus and graduated from Ohio State University. In the last few years I have really started to follow soccer. My oldest daughter plays soccer in Onalaska and we like to watch the pros play too.
What one thing would you like to do better?
I love to cook and bake, but I want to be a gourmet cook. I would really like to be able to whip up unbelievable French and Italian cuisine and desserts.
What is your favorite food?
My Favorite food is chocolate, but not just any chocolate...it has to be the darkest, richest chocolate you can find.
What do you like about your job?
I use the same skills every day, but I never know how the day will unfold. I might have breaking news, the president could be in town, there could be severe weather or you could get to hear the story of a war hero. You learn something new every day. I love it!
What do you order on your pizza?
When it comes to pizza I like just about everything from just cheese to herbs or even meat lovers ... just don't ask me to eat cold, leftover pizza.
What can you tell us about your family?
I live with my two daughters in Onalaska with our dog "Coco" and our bunny. When I'm not at work I am running kids around like most moms to soccer practices, dance classes and piano lessons. Her family loves to go boating and spending time with family and friends.
