What do you do for J. Selby's? I manage our social media accounts, website, do some marketing, take photos, and keep up with press related things. I also work Front of House - usually cashier. You've probably met me!
What's your favorite J. Selby's menu item? I love the Corndog because you can't ever find vegan corndogs. I also love the Spicy Chickin Sandwich - just add pickles!
What's your favorite thing to do in the Cities? I enjoy a good drag show, walking around the lake, or going to used book stores like Magers and Quinn.
What's your favorite animal? Sloths - it's me if I was an animal.
Your favorite binge-worthy TV show? Golden Girls. Always and forever.
What is something you're passionate about? Why? Video games/gaming. I have a degree in English and Creative Writing and view gaming as an incredible way to tell stories. I love helping people get into gaming or talking about it with people. Check out Life is Strange (on mobile, PC, and most consoles) if you're wanting an incredible story-driven game and don't consider yourself a gamer.
What made you decide to follow the vegan diet/lifestyle? I always was pretty grossed out by meat but I ate it. I did shy away from things with bones in it and a lot of red meat. When I learned how terribly animals are treated, I knew something had to change. I'll never go back to eating animal products.
What is one piece of advice you'd offer to someone hoping to become vegan or eat plant-based? Take it in steps if stopping animal products all at once scares you. I cut out meat, then dairy and eggs though consumed processed foods that contained them, and then cut those out.
