Life Outside watchLAB

Free time being a FT workaholic and a mom of a one rambunctious one year old does not happen often and I would not have it any other way. I love spending time with my husband, my daughter and our dog Pacino. There is never a dull moment for us with a toddler who is always trying to discover something new about the world and a three year old pup who is always up for an adventure with her. Following those two becomes an adventure of my own.

My life outside of watchLAB revolves around trying out all kind of restaurants, traveling, exploring and i’m always interested in learning something new.

Craziest Project Memory

I worked on a project that had to do with local parent groups and social media. The quotas were really tight and we weren't getting the responses we needed to fill the interviews, in order to make sure that it was filled on time I started contacting local parent groups through their direct website (emailing their group admins), as well as reaching out to them via social media.

Life outside watchLAB

Art is my passion. I’m a sculptor, illustrator, photographer, and an avid neon-bender. When I’m not making work, I can be found reading comic books, watching horror movies, playing video games, and cuddling with my cat. I’m a pretty well-rounded geek.

Life Outside watchLAB

When I am not at watchLAB, I am always looking for the next adventure- whether that is attending a concert or booking an outdoor activity. Most recently I went parasailing in Hawaii, ziplining and cave tubing in Belize, and had the chance to swim with dolphins in Mexico. Spending time with my friends and family while being able to experience new things and create lifetime memories is that I live for.

Life outside watchLAB

I'm a huge Chicago Sports fan, and try to watch as many Cubs, Bears, and Bulls games as possible - either at the stadium, at a bar, or on the couch! I also love going to see live music around the city, and occasionally perform music's greatest hits on the karaoke circuit.

Life Outside watchLAB

When I'm not chasing after my two young kiddos, I love tackling new personal challenges and adventures. In the past year it's been fitness and running a bunch of races, taking weekly pottery classes, learning Greek and planning/taking trips to Belize and Greece with my husband. To say I'm obsessive about planning and research is putting it mildly, I'm very much all or nothing!

Life outside watchLAB

I love to travel - highlights include Italy and the some of the "stans" in Central Asia. At home I enjoy playing guitar (mostly acoustic and rock-based songs), and spending time with my husband and our 4-year-old terrier mix, the most love-able AND stubborn dog!

Personal Motto

"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates

Life outside watchLAB

My life outside of work is firstly filled with taking care of my senior pups. When I'm not doing that I enjoy reading or watching shows and movies, mainly mysteries with the occasional biography or ethnography thrown into the mix. I travel whenever I get the chance, and love getting out of the city and going into nature.
