My favorite adventure in life was…. living and working in Mongolia.

The most important decision that I’ve made in life was… postponing graduate school, enjoying my 20s (traveling, playing on a semi-pro sports team, and trying out various career options), and deciding not to feel guilty or rushed.

If I was booking the guests for the GovLove podcast, I would book… engaging subject matter experts/perspectives while keeping in mind the importance of inclusion, diversity, and representation.

If I couldn’t work in my current position, I would…become a veterinarian.

I made the choice to attend #ELGL18 because… I am always energized by the content and creativity of ELGL. We are currently dealing with some challenging, complicated issues in our community and ELGL is often a breath of fresh air and source of new strategies for me.

I’ll know that I made the right choice to attend #ELGL18 if… I return to my office with at least two new and inspiring contacts to share future ideas/successes with.

If I was writing the questions for the feature, I would have asked… If your friends were asked to describe you as one Parks and Rec character, who would you be?
