On the weekends, I love to: Spend quality time with friends and family, take my dog for long walks (or throw the tennis ball for hours!), catch up on television and keep up with my college teams, the Orange and the Nittany Lions. I also cheer for my hometown teams - the Phillies, Flyers and Eagles.
My favorite movie is: "The Sandlot" (although my parents say when I was younger I would only watch "Harry and the Hendersons").
My favorite kind of music is: Pop (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, all the "good" stuff!!).
My favorite food is: Mexican and anything mom cooks.
Hidden Talents: I'm great at random trivia and I'm a very good swimmer (more technique than speed, haha).
Hobbies: Pilates, yoga, travel and trying new recipes. I also love exploring the area and learning about all the wonderful things the Upstate and Mountains have to offer!
Pets: Bandit, a Cavachon (Bichon / Cavalier King Charles mix)
Most Memorable Story: Winter storm of December 2009 that left motorists stranded for nearly 20 hours on the W. Va. Turnpike and thousands without power. Reports of 20+ inches of snow were the norm during that storm.
