When did you start working for VeriShip?
March 2019

What are three things that make you want to come to work at VeriShip each day?
1. The awesome people I get to work with!
2. The opportunity to try new things and be challenged to learn and grow!
3. The food!! We have amazing snacks!!!

What is one thing most people in the office don’t know about you?
I grew up on a farm about an hour outside of Memphis TN.

Before working at VeriShip, what was the most interesting/unusual job you had?
Several years ago I worked at an indoor inflatable park called Pump It Up.

What’s your favorite movie line?
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die

What is one tv show or movie you’re ashamed to say you love?
Napoleon Dynamite

Do you have any phobias?
I am a little claustrophobic in tight places.

What’s one item on your bucket list?
Run a sub 15:30 5K! I never really got to run the 5K in college so it has been my primary source of motivation since college! My current best is 16:15!

What’s the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
A Tesla Model 3.

Who is someone that inspires you?
My dad! I have never known anyone that works harder or treats people better than my dad! He is a rockstar!

If you could go back in time and witness any historical event, what would it be?
I would like to go back and witness the first ever sub 4 minute mile ever run! No one believed it was possible until it was done! Once it was broken several other people followed soon after in breaking that barrier. It just goes to show how much people are able to do once they believe the impossible is possible!

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Harsh lighting! I would rather sit in the dark!
