What her favorite thing about HYPE is: My favorite thing about HYPE is that it gives me opportunities to interact with like-minded people who care about the Greater Hartford region. Traditional networking isn’t really my MO, and HYPE offers a more laid-back environment with a general focus on improving the community in which we live, work, and play.

What her hobbies/interests are outside of work: I’ve been playing kickball with WAKA for 3 years, and I love it! I’m an amateur runner and amateur craft beer enthusiast. During my free time I like taking advantage of the fun things Downtown Hartford has to offer from UConn games at the XL Center to shows at Hartford Stage.

Are you a part of any other groups: I’m also a member of CANvas, a young professional group that supports the Greater Hartford Arts Council.

What are you currently reading? Would you recommend it: I just started A Feast For Crows, the fourth book in the series A Song of Ice and Fire. I would recommend the series if, like me, you’re trying to fill the void left by the end of Harry Potter. However it does take much longer to finish!
