I rode (with Ty driving!) in a dog sled into Yellowstone Nation Park to swim in a hot spring during February. I have pictures to prove it!

What part of Virtual Work Week are you most excited about?

I am looking forward to connecting with alumni that I have not met before during Virtual Work Week. I also like trying new things and this is definitely new!

What makes you passionate about the Face Masks Crew?

I really believe in the need for wearing masks to protect others. I also see it as a very visual symbol of how careful we should have always been being about hygiene in our lives.

This virus is terrible but it isn't the only thing we need to protect ourselves from. Our health and the economy has always paid a big price for illness in this country that could be prevented if we practiced better person hygiene. The mask can be used to serve as a reminder of other safe practices.
