“In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog, Dante, aggressively attending Ed Sheeran concerts since 2012 (current count = 12), composting, recycling, and living a low waste lifestyle, continuing the perpetual quest to find the best pizza in the world (current favorite = Gustapizza in Florence, Italy), and strategizing ways to successfully run and win The Amazing Race one day.”
