What do you love most about living in Nashville?

There is always something new to experience. It’s very hard to become bored in Nashville. The abundance of new businesses, events and pop-ups has allowed me to gain an altered view of the world we live in. It is very exciting here but also very educational. Staying aware of the happenings in this city has heightened my appreciation of the productivity and creativity so many people who live here have to offer. Yes, it is a very entertaining city to live in, but also extremely motivational to be surrounded by the fast pace of this city.

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Right now it’s New Zealand, but my answer to this question changes almost every day!

What is a crazy story you love to tell at parties?

The time a plane crashed into my neighbor’s house/backyard.

What do you do for fun?

Anything with friends! I am always up for a new adventure, whether it’s traveling or exploring hidden gems in Nashville.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Every day is an opportunity to learn or experience something new. Whether it is a cooking recipe, a current event or tackling a new obstacle, I believe every small or large thing will affect my outlook on life. I get out of bed to see what next circumstance will drive me to reach my highest potential.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A Caprese panini.

Last words?

I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. You are exactly where you need to be in this time and place. Staying in the present rather than clinging to the past or forecasting the future has helped me accomplish my goals.
