How do you prefer to start your workday?
I like to spend the first part of my day with coffee and emails.
What’s something that has surprised you about your chosen career path?
I never had a set career path goal, but after being in the real estate/rental market for 5 years my outlook on investments and future market conditions was broadened beyond belief.
What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?
Getting to bed earlier! Downtime is usually late evenings after the kids go to bed but it’s a vicious cycle if you’re not careful.
Do you prefer being active or relaxing during your free time?
I prefer being active. I enjoy all sports and outdoor activities. I am always open to trying something new, at least once.
Are you a dog person or a cat person (or neither)?
Dogs all day.
What book are you reading now/What show are you binging?
My books are boring work books but I am binging “Billions” right now.
What is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking?
The atmosphere of so many diverse companies and entrepreneurs all collaborating and working to build a better Tulsa (plus the coffee & beer is pretty good).
