Which way does your toilet paper hang on the wall – over or under? Toilet paper can only hang one way – over, NOT under. It makes no logical sense to have it hang under. With it hanging over you can always find the end of it and it’s closest to you. It’s one of my pet-peeves to see toilet paper hang under.
What are three things still left on your bucket list? Sing at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, run a 10K and half marathon, and live in Nashville, TN
What is your favorite cereal? My favorite cereal is hot cereal – oatmeal! There are so many ways to change it up, but I like it with cinnamon, a little bit of maple syrup and a banana.

What was your favorite TV show growing up? Full House. I loved watching it because of the youngest girl in the family of three girls; her name was also Michelle and I thought she was super awesome.
What is my favorite cereal? Lucky charms. First, I like to eat all the little pieces that look like cat food, and then match up the marshmallows and eat them two by two. It’s a very long process…
What was my favorite toy as a kid? I had a stuffed bunny, he was pink and wore overalls. I named him Pinky. My aunt gave him to me when I was born and I took him everywhere. The stuffing started to come out and his head almost came off; my mom tried many times to throw him away when I wasn’t looking, but I always found him and saved him. I still have him today.

What has been your biggest adventure so far? I recently finished hiking the Appalachian Trail. It was the biggest adventure I’ve taken on, and certainly the longest. The trail goes from Georgia to Maine, and takes five to six months. I left April 11th and finished October 3rd. Unfortunately, I didn’t finish the whole trail due to an injury, but now I have a perfect excuse to go back. It was my first thru-hike, and now I’m hooked. PCT 2015 anyone?
What are three things still left on your bucket list? Three things left on my bucket list are getting really good at rock climbing, learning how to ride a motorcycle/getting my license, and learning how to play the guitar. So far I’m a terrible rock climber and I can play one Neil Young song on the guitar…very slowly.
If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose? I would love to have the power to comprehend any language, written or oral. Not only would traveling become a breeze, but having an expansive knowledge of all languages would turn reading into an entirely different experience.

What was your favorite TV show when growing up? When I was really little we didn’t have cable, so it was always a treat to go to my grandma’s and get to watch Nickelodeon and Disney. My favorite shows had to be Legends of the Hidden Temple and the Saddle Club. I thought for sure I could grow up and be on those shows!
What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time? Oh man, I feel like everything I do could be considered “nerdy”. I like to knit, but I try to make things that I can’t buy in stores, like Harry Potter scarves!
What has been your biggest adventure so far? I had the opportunity to travel to Australia when I was in school and it was the best experience of my life! I got to climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge, what a blast!

What is the worst pet you have ever had? Worst pet?!!? Pets are the best!! I have a miniature schnauzer named Ellie right now. She is just the sweetest thing ever, and she’s really good at balancing things on her head!! I’m pretty sure you can’t find a better dog!!
What was the worst punishment you received at school? I was given a week’s worth of lunch detention for laughing too much during class.
Three things still left on my bucket list: dog sled under the Northern Lights, dance beneath the redwoods and sequoias, and watch a movie at a drive in theater with my closest friends
