1- I like most genres of music, and can remember lyrics to songs better than I can remember my social security number or my address.

3- When I was about 14 months old I contracted pneumonia and was placed in an oxygen tent… doctors were worried I would not survive.

5- I’m scared to swim in the ocean.

6- My favorite candy bar is Reese’s, but I do not like Reese’s pieces.

8- I got my first cavity at 27 years old.

9- Textures bother me— when someone runs their hands across the carpet it wigs me out for some reason ?!

Me with my family at home… our favorite place to be!
