What do you most enjoy about your job?
I love the social aspect! I am able to get to know the people I help, and it makes what I do feel more meaningful. Also, I love the problem-solving aspect.

What is a book or movie that has inspired you – and why?
Walking on Water by Madeleine L'Engle inspired me to see life as art where every paint blotch on the canvas merely adds character and beauty to the work. I am reminded that the cosmos finds its genesis in chaos.

What do you do to disconnect or de-stress?
Either playing my Xbox or journaling. Aestheticism gives me joy, so I love decorating my journal entries to the max. I want every page to be art.

Who is currently on your Spotify list?
Taylor Swift.
