How do you spend your weekends?

I take my dogs on walks along Chicago's Lakeshore Trail, and I enjoy baking new recipes for treats to share with friends and coworkers.

What’s a trip that changed you, and why?

When I was a teenager I took a week long backpacking trip in the Smoky Mountains and in the middle of that trip ran into a black bear. Thankfully, there were park rangers at the same camp site that had been tracking this particular bear to relocate it away from trails so no one was hurt. Being able to pet a sleeping wild bear gave me a deep appreciation for nature and the outdoors, and is a trip that I will always remember.

What energizes you outside of work?

Its been a longstanding goal to visit every brewery in Chicago proper - a goal I know I'll never be able to finish, but welcome the challenge to get out there and see new areas of the city!
