What is one thing about you people would be surprised to know?
I love architecture, interior design, and studying the real-estate industry. If I could start over, I probably would’ve gone to school to become an architect.
What is your favorite thing to do in the Conway area?
Going to flea markets, trying out new restaurants, and hiking Petit Jean for sure!
What is the one activity that you can get lost for hours doing?
Reading or shopping, unfortunately for my husband haha.
How long have you been pulling shots?
A little over a year.
What is your favorite part of the job?
My coworkers have become my family.
What is your favorite coffee brew method?
I’m pretty easy to please in that I love a classic latte with a well pulled shot, however I also love Vietnamese coffee.
What is your favorite drink on your coffee shop’s menu?
Blackberry Cobbler Latte or the Dirty Apple Chai Latte
What is your favorite virtue?
What do you appreciate the most in your friends?
Loyalty and empathy.
What is your idea of happiness?
Getting to hang out with all of my extended family, playing games, traveling, and even just spending the day hanging out with my immediate family, drinking coffee and cooking together/trying new foods. If you couldn’t tell, I’m extremely family oriented, so anything with them makes me happy.
If not yourself, who would you be?
I would probably say Audrey Hepburn if we’re allowed to choose people from the past because she started off in ballet, starred in some of my favorite movies, but also did so much humanitarian work. She was an incredible, classy lady and you can tell she was an extremely hard worker.
Where would you most like to live?
Tough decision because I love traveling, but I also like being close to my family. I love northwest Arkansas, but I’d love to live anywhere in Europe or Israel.
What is your ideal occupation?
Owning my own business (or multiple) but building them up enough to the point where I can be a little hands off and get to enjoy my family,
