Team Spotlight

What is your favorite part about being Vice President of New Business Development at KS&R?
Meeting clients and developing relationships with clients. I love learning about the different needs of specific clients and how they differ, even with other clients within the same industry.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?
In my spare time, I love to tap into my creative side - whether I am acting in a local play or trying to learn how to play the Banjo.

What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
My daughter is a vegetarian and so our diet has shifted much more heavily towards vegetables and fruits. We have a truck load of vegetables and fruit at all times. My family is heavily engaged in our community and we are always trying to help, whether with the church or other local groups. Right now our refrigerator is filled with pasta and meatballs for a huge meal that we are helping to plan for the high school for one of their big events.

What food have you never eaten but would really like to try?
Caviar. I really think I would enjoy it.

What was cool when you were young, but isn't cool now?
So many things. You should see my wardrobe at home! I go back and watch old TV shows and some of them are completely inappropriate by today's standards. "Cheers" and "Three's Company" are two that come to mind as really not appropriate by today's standards. Of course some are always good, like the "Dick van Dyke Show".

If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?
Either Morgan Freeman because I love the Shawshank Redemption, or Tom Hanks because he is such a great actor.

If you built a themed hotel, what would the theme be and what would the rooms look like?
It would be all about "coming home". All the rooms would be big comfortable rooms where you could curl up on a couch or lay in bed to work, read, or watch TV. They would all have fireplaces and beautiful views of picturesque landscapes like mountains or beautiful vistas. The focus would be about feeling like you are home even when you are away. I travel a good amount for work and most of the time, the hotels are perfectly fine, but sometimes they are a little sterile and they don't have that personal touch. Coming home is so wonderful after a long trip.
