The film that comes to mind as my favorite is...
Forest Gump. Not only is it an entertaining movie with a ton of big name actors, it shows that no matter who you are, great things can happen to even the humblest of people.

When it comes to sports, I prefer...
Anything that has to do with my Philadelphia sports teams. I never pass up an opportunity to see them when they are in town. I am also a baseball enthusiast and have been to 12 different stadiums around the country.

Words of wisdom...
Always find a way to be kind and polite to someone. It is incredibly easy to be nice to others and it takes much more effort to be rude. Why not do the easier of the two?

I never get tired of watching...
The Office! I have seen every episode of the show numerous times. I was also at a wrap party in Scranton, PA when the show ended and have met numerous cast members in person over the years. Bears, Beats, Battlestar Galactica.

Animals of any kind. I practically have a mini zoo at my house because I can't turn down an animal in need.

The best part about being a Little Ambassador is...
The community we have here! It's unlike anywhere else I have ever worked. I absolutely love it.

My favorite season in Northern Virginia is...
Fall! I love the cooler weather and the leaves changing on the trees.
