I have an older sister and a younger brother. My sister lives in Georgia, but I see her regularly. My brother and my mother live with me. I am very close to my brother; we try to spend time together as much as possible. Most of the time we spend together comes in the form of car fixing projects.

My favorite vacation spot is any place that involves outdoor activities. My dream vacation is a ski trip to Switzerland. My fiancé likes the beach and I like the forest and the mountains. We alternate between both when we travel.

What’s your favorite movie or TV show?

My favorite Tv shows are anything that involves the Marvel Universe. The latest one that I enjoyed was The Loki series. I’m looking forward to the expansion of that story.
