Q: Why do you love working at Class?
Oh, I love that Class hires great people that I get to work with every day.
Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Night owl! But there’s nothing like a quiet early morning. I like being the first one awake when I don’t have to talk to a single soul and just get to spend time with myself.
Q: What was your first AIM screen name?
Mine was luckycharms790! Cereal has been my favorite food since I was a kid.
Q: What was your first job?
I was a “Sandwich Artist” at Subway!
Q: What song is on repeat for you right now?
You Can Call Me Al – Paul Simon
Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?
I changed my mind every week, but there were a few standouts that lasted a bit longer -Bunny breeder, movie director, hotel owner, and restaurateur, to name a few.
Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?
In high school, we had a tradition where the Seniors would give advice and appreciation to the rest of the school in an open mic forum. I will never forget one of the seniors I looked up to share her advice – “Take the compliment. Don’t add a caveat or make excuses, just say ‘Thank You'”
