What is your favorite part of working for TeamBonding?
The hardworking, passionate, thoughtful coworkers I have to make me love coming to work every day & doing what I do.

If you could live in a book, TV show, or movie, what would it be?
The Twilight Series… there is something about vampires that fascinate me.

An ice-cold gallon of water, my cell phone, and my pillow.

If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you go?
I have always wanted to go to Greece & Italy!

What is your favorite food? (If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?)
Pasta with butter and freshly shaved Parmesan…  I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

What is the name of your favorite restaurant? Where is it located?
My favorite restaurant is called La Familia, it’s located in my hometown of Katonah, NY… I have never tasted better linguine with clams in white sauce in my life, they also have amazing salad slices and garlic knots.

If you could choose one superpower, what would it be and why?
I would choose to fly so I could visit my family & friends more often.

Definitely – without a doubt!

If you could invite three famous, historical leaders to dinner, who would invite and what food what you eat?
