If you were a candy bar which one would you be and why?
Hershey’s Chocolate Bar – Companies, employees, food chains and even candy bars come and go. Hershey’s was the first and still competes.

I don’t foresee Hershey’s or myself going anywhere, anytime soon

Favorite event you’ve ever worked?
My favorite event was a house party in Massilon to bring in the summer season. We were set up in stations around the house and swimming pool. We love being center stage in a party atmosphere. I ran a seafood bar filled with ceviche, mussels, shrimp, crab, and three types of oysters. I made it my mission to educate and encourage guest to try all the items. The host and guests made for a really fun evening

Fun fact
My favorite movie theater snack is an ice cold pickle. Pickles are a normal option in Texas. I smuggled one into a theater here and heard someone ask “why do I smell pickles?” I felt like such an outsider
