Q: If you could invite any three people to dinner, who would they be?
A: Jane Goodall, Anthony Bourdain, My grandfather (who I never met). Though this would bring together my loves for animal advocacy, cooking & travel, and my personal history, I don’t know if they would be interested in meeting each other!
Q: If you could spend one week anywhere in the world, where would it be? Why?
A: Southeast Asia, because it’s a region I haven’t yet explored and I am fascinated by the diversity in people, food, culture, art, and natural wonders.
Q: If you weren’t working at NEEP, what other job would you have?
A: Running an animal sanctuary/traveling the world
