Yes, I’m actually in town from Los Angeles for my friend’s birthday, and I knew it would be freezing here, so I just packed up my ski suit—it’s the warmest thing I own. My friends have been making fun of me, but I don’t care. When I travel, I like to make sure I have all contingencies accounted for. I like being prepared.
I bet you’re a very good business analyst!
Yes, I was actually a civil-rights attorney up until recently. But my law partner was also my husband, and we got a divorce, so I needed a change.
Do you miss the work?
Absolutely not. There was a lot of stress that went into my old job, representing people in that capacity. Now, I work in IT at an insurance company and the stakes are a little different.
Are you a Nets fan?
I am, but my team is the Clippers. I’m a season-ticket-holder, and it’s seriously like having another part-time job.
Do you have time to do anything else?
I knit, I crochet, and I just got into weight lifting. Currently, I can deadlift 185 pounds.
