Until taking a linguistics class in college, she believed “weekend” to be pronounced “week-yend.” If given the opportunity, she would abandon her current life to become a free-spirited babe in a “friendly motorcycle gang.”
Despite its reputation for tainted food, she remains a loyal member of the Chipotle Mexican Grill fan club, termed the “Chi-cult-le.”
She once took a cardboard cutout of Harry Potter to prom.
And to top it all off, she has her Google Analytics Individual Qualification certification.
