    Favorite tv show: Parks and Rec, Ron Swanson is the man!! I also love Criminal Minds and Burn Notice.

    Favorite Food: Fish Tacos…..it is even better if I get to do the fishing beforehand.

    Interesting Fact or Talent: I played collegiate soccer for four years and loved it. I was usually the smallest player on the field by about a foot so I rarely ever had calls go against me. You can’t help but feel bad for the little guy!! Also within the right context I will eat almost anything on a dare.

    Celebrity Look Alike: I have heard James Franco especially in Batman but also a Disney Channel actor named Kent Boyd….look it up, it’s crazy!!

    If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go: I would love to travel all over the place with my wife and son Easton. I eventually want to visit all the major national parks in the United States especially “Glacier National Park” in Montana. We have done a pretty good job so far at covering the southern National Parks. If I could go one place I would love to visit Scotland and hopefully look up some family heritage.

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I haven't been to Italy or Ireland yet so it would be one of those.  I guess I would have to lean against the leaning tower of Pisa in Italy and kiss leprechauns in Ireland or is that, kiss the Blarney Stone?

    Interesting Fact or Talent: I played collegiate soccer and have had four surgeries because of it- but my time playing and friends made was worth every single one! Also, I might be throwing myself under the bus here, but if you ask me, I can rap the Bon Qui Qui song for you… And I’m sure most parents will have no idea what I am even talking about!

    Celebrity Lookalike: Amy Adams, aka Giselle from the movie Enchanted. My friends say I not only look just like her, but embarrassingly enough, I also act like the part she plays in Enchanted! At least I will always have an easy go-to Halloween costume.

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would go back to KENYA. I met my husband on a mission trip to Kenya in 2012 and have been in love with the country and the people in it ever since! My husband and I want to do international missions, so hopefully we will be traveling all over the world one day. In the context of vacation, I have also always wanted to go somewhere with really huge WAVES- maybe Hawaii? The waves and the ocean in general always seems to fascinate me and also point me to God’s infinite power!
