"I chose a MACH bar because it represents a personal goal of mine. MACH is the abbreviation for Master Agility Champion, which is a title given to dogs who compete successfully to that level in agility at trials sanctioned by the American Kennel Club. My newest dog, Ace, should start competing in 2015 or early 2016. "

What excites you about your work?

Producing projects that are accurate and as error free as possible. I really enjoy trying to find errors in the work before the projects go out so that the errors can be fixed and either updating the process or educating the person so that the errors don't happen again. 

What is the most out-of-the-box task you do at work?

I have a plant that has supposedly been handed down to the head of the electrical department for decades that I have to keep alive. I'm not sure if my job depends on it...but...maybe.

Between being invisible or being able to fly, which would you choose and why?

It depends on if I would have to be invisible all the time or not. I would need to set rules. I'd rather be invisible if I could control when I was invisible. But, if it's all or nothing, I guess I'd rather be able to fly...unless that means I'd have to give up being able to walk. Nevermind. I don't want either.

What was the last picture you took with your phone?

One of my dogs (Luna) with her new stuffed elephant toy

What was your first job?

I was part-time at a small day care in someone's home and helped watch/feed the kids after work.  

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a math teacher.

What word best describes you?


What is your most unusual possession?

I have a working Grandfather clock. My grandfather bought it for my grandmother in 1974.

What is the best dish you can cook?

I love to cook and have many "best" dishes... from Chipolte shrimp to Fiery Chocolate Torte, with meatloaf and grilled zucchini boats in between.
