What business or organization are you involved with? Bank of Montreal

What is your role with that organization? Mortgage specialist

What’s your favourite thing about living in the Okanagan? The stunning scenery! There is so much beauty everywhere you look in the Okanagan, from our gorgeous lakes to our rolling vineyards. The wine from our region is pretty tasty too. Haha!

If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why? One of my uncles, they are like father figures to me. This last year has been difficult with all the restrictions. I’m so happy they’re starting to lift a bit so I can get back to annoying them.

What’s your go-to happy place? A quiet place with a good book. I love reading and usually have a couple on the go so I have something to jump into depending on the mood I’m in.

What are you most proud of? Working with such an amazing financial institution in BMO. The culture and leadership is absolutely incredible and very community driven. It is such a fun team to be part of.

What are the top three things on your bucket list?
1. Sky dive. I’m still figuring out how to work up the nerve.
2. Get my motorcycle licence.
3. Write a book.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? I remember being three years old and sneaking the cat’s dry food. The worst of it is I really liked it. Blech! I’m pretty sure that takes the cake since as I meow keep to human food.

Latest movie or book? I’m currently reading Velocity by Dean Koontz, The Search by Nora Roberts, and have recently decided to try and read the Bible from front to back.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? As my name isn’t very common, I grew up not getting to have the fun name pencils and stickers etc. While it seems silly, it was something I complained about when I was younger. This person went and had pencils and stickers and other treasures made up for me with my name on it. I know it sounds small, but that simple act of kindness has always stayed with me.

If today were your last day, how would you spend it? A big campout with as many of my loved ones as possible.
