How long have you been at BuzzFeed:

What's your favorite part about working here:
"The people. Everyone brings their true authentic selves to work, which is a huge part of what makes our culture so great. The support from my team is always there, too. We work hard and laugh hard too."
What's one way you stay relaxed:
"Playing with my two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Rosie and Louie. I am overly-obsessed with them and my entire Instagram consists of model shots of them!🐶🐶"
