What is your go-to karaoke song?
You can’t do karaoke without “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

What do you usually do when you have time off?
I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. We love trying out new food spots, taking quick trips, or just relaxing at the house with a good movie to watch while playing UNO.
What’s your favorite movie, and why?
Anything with Denzel Washington or Bruce Willis will always be a favorite for me.

Tacos! I honestly could sit and eat them all day.
