Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… snuggled up with my husband and baby girl, with a latte in hand. I'd much rather be binging reality tv but chances are I'll be forced to watch Trolls... again. 

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… studying abroad in Athens, Greece. I felt so connected to every stranger I met, like they wore their heart on their sleeve and wanted to treat you with the utmost hospitality. Everyone was your new friend!

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Scotland for the rich culture and gorgeous Highlands!

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… seeing the healing power of love. Too often if you watch the news or even scroll through social media, you might see what's broken in the world. But when I focus on the couples I get to work with and their sweet kind hearts, I'm reminded of what's good.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD DO… fashion design! Although I lack the skill to thread a needle I'm fascinated by texture and beading. 

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE the best piece of advice I took away from our pre-marital counselling was when an issue arises, check with each other on a scale of 1-10 how important is this to you? Then it's not about who's right but seeing that it might be a level 7 important to them when it's only a 3 to you, for example. It's a great tool!

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… as a native Pittsburgher I love living in Georgia for their southern hospitality. Pennsylvania will always have a piece of my heart but the southern charm and grace is something that has made a lasting impression on me.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… we don't own pets at the moment but I'm trying to convince my husband to let us get a puppy and some chickens!
