Q: Where are you from originally?
A: I was born and raised in Rockford. My husband and I did move out to the west coast for a little while, but we ended up returning to be close to our family. Rockford will always be home to me, and I love our city!
Q: What do you like to do in your spare time?/Hobbies?
A: Well, pre-pandemic my hobbies were very different. Any chance I could I would go out to see live music, travel, visit museums, and of course, try new restaurants. Nowadays I’m exploring my love for cooking – which has always been there and spending more time in nature by taking hikes.
Q: What is your favorite food?
A: Controversial and rarely had, but a hot dog with ketchup.
Q: Do you cook – if so, what is your specialty?
A: I’ve recently perfected these sticky sweet but garlicky blistered shishito peppers. Other than that, I’m an adventurous cook and will try to make anything.
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: No pets yet. We’re house hunting so that our future dog can have a nice home, hah!
