What are your favorite hobbies?
I love mountain biking and spending time outside. I feel that being in nature contributes to a sense of calm and wonder that I really appreciate. I love the thrills of riding downhill fast and the both workout and the life metaphors inherent in a long uphill climb.

What is the most inspiring part of your job?
The most inspiring part of my job is being there for kids when they need someone and helping them grow and change.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
To slow down or stop time.
