My job description in a Tweet

"I help host events and programs with family engagement and try not to eat all the food. I want ALL the food!" 

What I wanted to be when I was a little kid

When I was little, I wanted to be a professional basketball player. Then I got a little bit older and realized WNBA players aren’t paid like NBA players, so I scratched that. Afterwards, I wanted to be a baker… and a teacher, a surgeon, an astronaut at NASA, a simultaneous translator for the UN, the President of the United States. You know, everything.

Pet's name and favorite toy

I have a beautiful, fat, garbage-eating gray tabby cat named Penelope Cat Trinklein (we call her Penny). I saved her after she was thrown out of a car on a highway down in Vancouver. Her favorite toy is some jingly stick. She loves to chase whoever is holding it.

Favorite band

My favorite song according to Spotiy’s “Your Top Songs of 2016” is “Writings on the Wall” by Sam Smith. It’s the theme song from the 007 movie “Spectre”. After that it’s “The Scavenger” by John Williams from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. I like movie scores. They’re my favorite.
