As a kid, who was your idol?
Too busy drooling over Zac Effron in the high school musical movies (as a kid) to decide who my idol was. I mean common who wants to spend New Year’s Eve at a ski resort because of that movie?!
When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
Do you prefer cats or dogs?
Dogs all the way! I am a “dog mom” to a chocolate lab named Tulo.
Whats your favorite season, and WHY?
Summer! Warm weather, golf, softball, camping, and no shoveling snow.
I’m Italian so I think I’m obligated to say Pasta. But I’m a sucker for a good turkey dinner with all the fixings.
Least favourite food?
Bacon. I know, I get told “what’s wrong with me” but I can not eat anything with bacon.
What is something about you that no one would ever guess?
I was apart of a 5 pin bowling league for many years growing up. I have trophies and badges to prove it was legit.
Where did you grow up?
I am a farm girl, grew up outside of Lethbridge in Picture Butte. Spent my childhood riding in the tractor during harvest season and checking cattle with my dad.
Do you prefer salty or sweet?
Sweet tooth 100%. Gimmie all the cake and chocolate in the world.
What are you most proud of ?
Putting my mind towards things and achieving those goals. Having a house, a well trained dog, buying a car, and finishing post secondary.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why!
Fiji! I stayed there for 2 1/2 weeks in December of 2015 and want to go back. The people and food were amazing. No snow and 30+ weather all year long.

In bed by 8:30 pm cuddling my dog. 22 going onto 82, I am an old lady at heart.

What is your favourite book or movie and why did you like it so much?
