What’s your favorite book?
The book I grab the most is Cook This Book by Molly Baz. I love her voice that comes through the pages and the unapologetic amount of garlic and salt she recommends for her recipes.
What career path did you want to pursue when you were a kid?
When I was five, I wanted to be an animal trainer — a good indicator of my love for animals and bossiness as a child.
What are your favorite sports teams?
Hands down, the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics and Ice Skating teams. My friends and I have been to both post-Olympic U.S. tours.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Hiking and running through Marin and SF.
