Favorite Sports Team
I actually don’t like movies that much unless I go to a theater, but one movie that stands out as one I find myself recommending a lot and that I absolutely obsess over is the Netflix original movie Someone Great.
I am definitely more of a TV girl where you can usually find me watching Bob’s Burgers, any and all baking shows, or the weather channel (especially during hurricane season).
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I played softball from 7 years old through high school with 2 years off when I was 12 and 13. When I was younger our teams were particularly bad and there was one season where the only game we won was because the other team forfeited after their coach became enraged at the umpire and called his team off the field and said they were going home. High school had more success and we won the state championship once (runner up another time).
