My most embarrassing moment was when I was in competitive dance and we had our annual sleepover at the studio.

‘Till I Collapse' by Eminem. It has such a great beat to run to, plus it was the song to our opening routine during audition finals my first year, so it always brings me back to how hard I fought to make it on this team.



Most embarrassing moment

Before my current position, I worked in the recruiting division for my company. One day, I was finishing up a phone interview with a candidate when I saw an email pop up from my mother. I guess that distracted me just enough to end the conversation with “I love you!” I didn’t know what to say, so I just froze for a moment until the candidate hung up. He didn’t end up getting the position, but at least I sent the message that we really care about our employees!

I was a Disney kid, so all of the classic Disney movies were always in the VCR. One of my long lasting favorites was (and still is) Dumbo, and let’s be honest, Disney movies are the best to sing along to.
