In her spare time, she plays soccer, ice skates, occasionally bikes to work, and reads a lot. She's a big believer in living a sustainable life. She likes her coffee black, wine red, beer hoppy, skies sunny, and apartment clean. She's a major Game of Thrones fan. Her goal is to retire to a house on the beach.
