Biggest accomplishment: I was in the business world for five years and found out I just didn't love money enough. I liked people more. Deciding to forego a career in business and go to medical school feels rewarding.

Most people don't know … I'm actually a very shy person.

Your dream superpower? Teleportation. I love to go places, but I hate long plane flights.

On your bucket list: I'd like to travel all over: Africa, Australia, go to Chicago to see a taping of "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me," my favorite NPR show, and I want to learn to play drums. I really want to karaoke all of "Ice Ice Baby" at some point.

I own too many … accessories. And I love kitchen accessories, as well. I have 11 whisks, all from Williams- Sonoma, all used.

My guilty pleasure is … Taylor Swift's 1989. I also have an obsession with karaoke. I keep a running list of songs I want to sing in my phone.

If you were stranded on a desert island and you could bring one … Book?Anything by Bill Bryson, specifically "A Walk in the Woods" Food?Breakfast skillet at Third & Hollywood with the cheddar biscuits Movie?"Breakfast at Tiffany's" Album?
