In her free time, she says she loves to be active:


“I enjoy going on walks, playing in sand and
indoor volleyball leagues, CrossFit, as well as traveling with friends and family. However, a
perfect night would also include eating some popcorn from the Centre Theatre, reading a good
mystery novel, all while cuddled up in fuzzy socks and blankets."
