Finish this sentence…”I’m at my happiest when..”   I’m with my family watching an SF Giants game.

The most funny movie I have ever seen is… Ahhhhh, it’s so hard to pick just one!  If I have to choose, Office Space.

Advice for my future self  Stay flexible – figuratively & literally.

Group/organization/demographic you are most driven to help:  I feel so honored to work on Willamette Dental Group’s $1 Million employee giving campaign to support the Knight Cancer Challenge.  We have such a unique and important opportunity to change the game when it comes to curing and preventing cancer.  And it can happen in our own backyard!

I complain the most about… Indifference & apathy. Everyone doing a little yields a lot.

When I have an out-of-town visitor, the top 3 things they should do in Oregon are…

1) Tour Willamette Valley wine country

2) Visit Bend

3) Get a scoop at Salt & Straw

The quickest way to make me mad is to… Litter/Hurt Animals/Be a Dodger Fan

If you could get tickets to any concert who would you see? A really diverse festival like FarmAid or Bonaroo.
