When did you start at Thrive?
I have been with Thrive for about 5 months, I started in April 2018.
What are some of the things you love about being a Thriver?
I love the culture and my co-workers. Everyone is so caring and nice. I really appreciate the family-friendly culture and the work-life balance at Thrive.
If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be?
This is a hard one…because I have so many pets I am always covered in cat and dog hair, so I would have to go with Fluffy as an eighth dwarf.
What’s the best thing to have for breakfast?
I love breakfast food! I have two favorites, I love avocado toast on rosemary sourdough bread with egg whites and a drizzle of salsa, and I love a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich on jalapeno cheddar bread.
Tell us about your dream vacation.
An Alaskan cruise, that’s been on my bucket list for a while.
You can suddenly be really good at any sport. Which one do you choose? Why?
I am not really into sports, but if I had to pick one I would go with boxing because I enjoy taking boxing classes at the gym.
Are you an explorer or a homebody?
I am definitely a homebody. I like exploring small towns around Austin, but at the end of the day, I like hanging out at home with my pets and relaxing.
