Who's your dog?
Nora is our 12-pound Maltese-Poodle mix! She’s super cute and probably the most loving dog you’ll ever meet. We get along just fine, but really, she’s Kevin’s dog. I’m pretty sure she would snuggle him 24/7 if she could. Not that I’m jealous or anything.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I sometimes say that “people are my hobby” because I don’t really know how to pick a favorite activity when I just love being with people no matter what we’re doing. I’m also an extremely cautious person by nature, but my friends and family have gotten me to try things I would never normally do. Like more recently, they’re influencing me to overcome my deep fear of heights through rock climbing… Thanks guys. Making me grow and stuff.
How long have you been zero waste?
I was raised in an atmosphere that valued making the most of what you have and it stuck with me. Many of my habits feel natural, but I’ve actively worked toward being a conscious consumer and an advocate for sustainability since 2017 when I embraced a plant-based lifestyle. The more I learned and the more my awareness expanded beyond my own personal bubble, the more I began to adjust my life accordingly.
Who's in your family?
As of right now, in 2021, Kevin and I are new parents to our beautiful “rainbow” baby, Eliud, who was born in November of 2020. A “rainbow” baby is an endearing term for a baby that comes after a pregnancy and/or child loss. Every year, we have a day of remembrance that honors our “angel” baby, Zoì, whose name means “Life” in Greek.
