IF YOU COULD BE ON A REALITY TV SHOW, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?

Wheel of Fortune. I’m good with words, and since my dad was on the show when he was in his 20s (he won my parents’ honeymoon, among other things!), it would be fun to continue the tradition.

IF YOU COULD PICK UP A NEW SKILL IN AN INSTANT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Playing the guitar. I learned piano as a kid, which is great, but guitars are so much easier to just pick up and jam with.

WHAT 2-3 FICTIONAL CHARACTERS WOULD YOU BE A COMBINATION OF?

Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, April Ludgate from Parks and Rec, and Jo March from Little Women.

WHAT’S ONE FOOD YOU COULD EAT EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE? WHAT’S ONE FOOD YOU CAN’T STAND?

I could eat pasta every day– add some roasted veggies and garlic to a chickpea or lentil pasta and I’m happy. And I can’t stand the idea of eating meat… I’ve been veg since 2010 and will never go back!

WHAT IS ONE FAVORITE VERSE/PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE?

Revelation 21:3-5– it inspired one of my tattoos!
