What song do you have completely memorized from start to finish?

Just about any Kenny Cheney song but ‘Anything but Mine’ takes the cake. I can recite that song by heart

What would your perfect room look like?

My perfect room would be a light and airy room with big floor-to-ceiling windows just steps from a beach in Key West or the Virgin Islands.

What’s the farthest you’ve ever lived from home?

I attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL. Tuscaloosa was about a 17hr drive away from my hometown.

Where is the most relaxing place you’ve ever been to?

Most relaxing place I’ve ever been is at my families beach house in Delaware. I grew up going there so anytime I need a nice relaxing getaway that’s where I head. It always feels like home when I’m there and at the beach

W**hat would be your ideal way to spend the weekend?**

My perfect weekend is spend on some type of body of water. I’m a fiend for water so anytime the temperature hits above 75 degrees I’m always looking for a body of water. Whether it’s the ocean, lake, or pool I’m always looking to be there in the weekends (when I’m not at the ballpark)

W**hat are you looking forward to in the coming months?**

I’m really excited to open up a new ballpark. Our team has been working so hard to get this ballpark ready and I think it is truly amazing!

Why did you decide to work in baseball?

As lame as this sounds, I think baseball found me. I never really thought of minor league baseball to be my career path, I always knew sports but I never guess MiLB. Way back a trip to Fenway Park was what got me interested in a career in sports and I guess it was baseball all along that was my calling!

W**ho inspires you to be better?**

Both my mom and my dad made me who I am today. Both support and inspire me to be a strong and independent woman.

What’s your favorite TV show—the one you’re always watching on repeat?

Okay hear me out, I love the show Letterkenny. It’s priceless and if you haven’t seen it I fully suggest

What was your first job?

My first ever job was a camp counselor at a Girl Scout camp. I worked there all through high school and it really shaped me as a person and a worker

What is your favorite quote?

“Left foot, right foot, breath” - Pat Summitt. Pat Summitt is One of my idols and this quote is one I try to live by. Life is crazy out there and you’re going to have to take huge steps in your life, remember to take a deep breath and continue to step forward. This quote is one that keeps me going everyday
