Favorite food: I can’t say no to pizza.

First job: Busing tables at an Italian restaurant. I think that’s why I’m a fast walker to this day. (And thankfully, they didn’t serve pizza).

Fun fact: I had perfect attendance from grades K1-12; first time it ever happened in my hometown, according to the superintendent.

Secret (not so secret) obsession: My dog (an English Cream golden retriever named Emmet)

Favorite team: New England Patriots
