What is your favorite vacation you have ever taken? Why?: My favorite vacation would actually be one of my clinical rotations in Florida that I completed while in PT school. Although I was there to work, my weekends during an 8 week span were filled with friends visiting from home and spent on the beaches of Siesta Key, Fort Myers, and Sanibel Island. To me, nothing beats being on a beach near the ocean with good company.

My bucket list (three things I want to do before I die):

  • Tour through Europe, visiting cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Munich, Berlin, Rome, and London.
  • Go Skydiving, Learn how to surf
  • Go deep sea fishing

If you could trade places for a day with someone, who would it be and why?: If I could trade places with anyone in the world, I would do so with Ben Carson, the current US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. This is a man who has accomplished so much in his life, going from a profound Neurosurgeon who has completed the only successful separation of conjoined twins joined at the back of the head, to authoring numerous books and even running for president of the United States in the 2016 presidential election. He gave an amazing speech at my graduation from Trine University and on a side note, went to the same grade school and high school as my father in Detroit, Michigan.
