What would your last meal be?
Anything involving ice-cream in every serving, whether it be dippin’ dot accents on my eggrolls or a gelato reduction sauce for my prime rib; I succumb to the world of Ben and Jerry!
What superlative would your coworkers give you?
In high school, I was voted ‘Most Likely to be in Boy Band,’ a distinction I try to live up to everyday!
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by today?
Vegetable before dessert, because who doesn’t want to save the best for last!
