A: Boating. I go to the lake almost every weekend, as long as the weather is nice. My family has a pontoon boat on Lake Lanier, and we’d love to get a houseboat. One of my favorite times on the lake is on a weeknight, when it’s not busy. We will go up there for dinner occasionally, and it’s a great way to unwind.

A: Seventh Heaven

Q: What’s your favorite food or favorite kind of food?
A: Mexican

Q: If you could be an animal, what animal would you be and why?

Q: What would you do or buy if you won the lottery?
A: I would buy a new Jeep Wrangler.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about recruiting?
A: Getting to talk to people all day.

Q: If your life was a movie, who would play you?
A: I think Ellen DeGeneres is fun and quirky. She has a great personality and is true to herself. I think she tries to live as normal of a life as possible and continues to do great things for others.

Q: What about you would surprise your coworkers?
A: I was in the commercial for the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. One of my best friend’s dad was the producer for Snickers commercials at the time, and he was assigned this commercial featuring Atlanta and the Olympics, so he asked me to be in it.
