Job/Business: First Grade Teacher, Paddock Road Elementary, Westside Community Schools
What was your favorite placement and why?
My favorite placement was Chair of the High Heel Dash. It was fun to take on a fundraiser as vice-chair and then be able to follow through for another year. It was hard work but I had the chance to meet a lot of people in the community, in the League, and I learned a lot about volunteerism, planning, and fundraising!
What are your favorite restaurant(s) in Omaha?
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Sleep in, eat lunch with friends and maybe a little shopping, go for a run, take a nice nap, and then get some drinks! Of course, it’s always nice if there is a Law & Order marathon on in case I decide I don’t want to move from the couch.
What is your favorite season and why?
I love any change of season; but spring is probably my favorite. It’s nice to be able to get outside after being cooped up all winter and my class has grown up and is almost ready for second grade.
What is your favorite book or the last good book you read?
I love anything by Emily Giffen. JLO brought her to Omaha a few years ago and it was one of my favorite fundraisers. She signed a few of my books and I have a photo with her and one of my best friends!
What is your favorite television show?
FRIENDS. I watch it every night even though I have almost every episode memorized. I am really disappointed Parenthood is in the last season as it’s one of my favorites, along with Nashville and any Bravo reality show.
What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I love Creighton basketball games; I have been going to them since I was little when they were at the Civic Auditorium. Really, I love all live sporting events. Any place I can get a hot dog and a cold beer sounds fun to me.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
“You work hard to get ahead in life.”
