THE FIRESIDE CHAT
What was your first job? I worked as a lifeguard.
What are you reading right now? Educated by Tara Westover.
What’s your earliest memory? My first memory is of the day that my grandmother passed away. Seeing my mom so upset made a lasting impression.
Been anywhere recently for the first time? Utah and visited Arches National Park.
Who had the most influence on you growing up? My dad. He was diagnosed with MS in his early 20s and he never let it define him, he never complained, and he never let it keep him from accomplishing what he wanted to do. He showed us that you can accomplish anything if you work hard enough. He is still working hard every day.
