If I weren’t a public affairs professional I’d be... Princess Belle in the Light Parade at Disneyland, dazzling the nightly crowds on Mainstreet USA.

On my first day at FSB… we went on an office outing to Chipotle for lunch, I felt immediately bonded to my great colleagues over burritos and guacamole.

I enjoy working at FSB because… I am constantly being given projects and responsibilities that help me continue to grow in the communications profession.

When leaving the office for lunch, my favorite mid-town Sacramento restaurant to be seen at is… formerly Ma Jong’s, but after one too many plates of teriyaki chicken I’m going to have to say, Hot Italian.
