If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be? I think it would be great fun to work for Hollywood Studios in Disney as a cast member. I would work in the park and interact with guests.

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13? Life is short, enjoy your freedom, and spend time with your friends. Participate in school activities and travel whenever given the opportunity. Also, if you haven't done so already, you’re going to meet your best friends for life, so be nice!
What are the top three highlights of your life? Getting married, the birth of my two children, and getting my first job as an accountant.
People would be surprised to know: My best childhood friends are my best adult friends.
