Your most embarrassing date moment?
I mean, my conversation skills, comedic timing, and dance moves are pretty on point, so I've never really had an embarrassing moment... in my mind. KIDDING! Honestly, I've only been on one date in the last year. I kept opening the door and holding it for him. He finally had to politely ask if he could be the one to open and hold the door for me.
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
Winning UCF's business plan competition as the only woman-owned, manufacturing, non-obvious tech company was a big "pat-myself-on-the-back" moment. I still marvel that I had the cojones to build my own business around button covers, and get to work towards its success every day. Starting a company has been a truly humbling and rewarding experience that teaches you things about yourself that you never thought you could do.
