Another life, I’m pretty sure I was a really lazy cat, the kind that lies all day in the sun.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is “Romance without finance is ignorance.” It was given to me by this man in a purple velvet suit when I left work one day, he made me stand and listen to his escapades for an hour, but that piece of advice was memorable.

If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely revolve around cats, pizza, and tons of dancing.

What advice would you give a candidate who wants to join our team of superstars? Be patient and flexible, and have a good sense of humor.

If I weren’t so damn good at my job, I’d probably be, If I wasn’t so great at running payroll ;), I’d most likely be a writer.

What’s the most inspiring part of your job? The learning, the challenges. Having to step outside of my comfort zone is really scary, but doing it and growing is an amazing feeling. 

When I was 5, I was pretty sure I’d be a teacher when I grew up. One of those really stern, bossy ones.

The one book I want to give everyone I meet. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. Magic, romance, humor intertwined with incredible story-telling. What more could you want.
