QTell us a little-known fact about yourself.

A: I love hockey and will watch any hockey game I can find on TV, but of course, I am passionate about the Sabres.  At 16 years old, I announced that I would not eat my then received Easter chocolate hockey player until the Sabres won the Stanley cup. I still have it and am patiently waiting.

Q: What do you like to do for fun?

A: I love to travel. I recently went to Alaska which was the last state on my list that I had never visited. I’m also a Disney fanatic and will talk Disney with anyone who wants to listen!

Q: What is your favorite part about living in Buffalo?

A: My favorite part of living in Cheektowaga is it only takes me 10-15 minutes to get anywhere I need to be!

QWhat are you doing differently post-pandemic that you didn’t do before?

A: I’m a creature of habit and I really haven’t changed anything!

Q: What do you like best about working from home?

A: I like seeing my family before they go off to their jobs. Prior to the pandemic, I was always the first one up and out of the house. It’s nice to tell them to have a great day!

Q: Since you are no longer commuting to work, how do you fill your drive time?

A: I sleep in a little longer on my remote days.
