1. Give us a quick background on yourself.
I grew up in Buffalo, and moved back two years ago after living in Boston and Los Angeles, where I studied and worked in "art" and fashion. I'm currently enrolled at D'Youville College, pursuing a career as a psychiatric nurse practitioner, and I work as an activities aide with Alzheimer's patients.

2. Describe your best workout ever in three words:
Actually. Dead. Afterwards.

3. What songs are you obsessed with right now? 
"Slide", by Calvin Harris/Frank Ocean and "Told You I'd Be With the Guys", by Cherry Glazerr.

4. Any healthy habits to start or end your day?
I do 3 or 5 vinyasas every morning, followed by ten minutes of meditation, then I dry brush and take a cold(ish) shower. I try to meditate again in the early afternoon, and again before bed.

5. Favorite workout on the bike - hills, sprints, isolations or tap backs?‚Äč
Isolations !!!!!

6. Buffalo food truck you can't live without?
I've never been to a food truck in Buffalo, actually. I like to cook/ assemble salads, but my love for Kuni's is pure and true.
