1. Tell us about your work history. 
After college, I bounced around a bit before landing at Merlot Marketing as an Associate Account Executive.  I worked there for over a year, gaining crucial experience... and drinking lots of good wine!  When the opportunity arose to work at Paragary Restaurant Group three years ago, I couldn't pass it up.  I was hired as a Marketing Coordinator and was later promoted to my current position as Marketing Director.

2. What is the best part of your job?

Um, everything? Working for Randy Paragary, one of the most successful and well-known businessmen in Sacramento, has been a priceless experience.  Along with that, I love that my job gives me the opportunity to make a difference in the community in which I live, and love.  Oh, and did I mention all the delicious food I get to eat daily??  Although I guess that's the best... and worst part of my job.  haha

3. What is one thing that might surprise people about you? I was painfully shy in high school...

4. What do you love about living here?
Sacramento isn't a small town, but it also isn't a big city.  That being said, it has the POTENTIAL to be a big, worldclass city.  It's an exciting time to witness and contribute towards that growth... which is why Sacramento is such a great place for young professionals.  We have the ability to put our own stamp on the future of the city.

5. When you aren't in the office where can we find you? At a PRG restaurant... or walking around midtown with my crazy little dog, Coco.
