In Her Own Words
What do you do (in 5 words or fewer)?
Propose and estimate new work.
What's the worst part of your job?
Saying no. But luckily, I don't have to say that too often, because I work with such smart people that it sometimes feels like anything is possible!
What's your dream project?
I used to work with a government accountability non-profit -- anything that exposes the effect money has on politics.
What is your biggest fear?
Spiders. And not being prepared.
What's the one thing in your life that's really important to you but you never quite get to?
I want to experience the world and travel more, but haven't made enough time. YET.
What still gives you hope?
I think that all of us -- Republicans, Democrats, and everyone in between -- all fundamentally want the same things. I think that we can find some common ground if we're able to get past party politics.
If you could have one magic item what would it be?
The ability to slow down time and add more hours to the day to do the things I love.
What's the best flavor combination you can think of?
Peanut butter and jelly. I'm not ashamed to say I still eat a PB&J at least once a week.
