Q. Describe your “perfect” meal, complete with dessert.
A. Any meal spent with family and friends that’s “unhurried” and full of great conversation and laughs is one that I enjoy.
Q. What’s something about you that might surprise people?
A. I sang in a gospel choir in college.
Q. What’s something you know more about than most people?
A. Elementary education – I spent four years studying it in college and three years teaching it. I still love the learning process and experiencing “light bulb moments”. I’m fortunate that I can apply some of that experience to my role with Eventbooking!
Q. What is one of your favorite places that you’ve traveled to? Why?
A. I didn’t travel much when I was young, but have been fortunate to take a few trips in recent years out to Huntington Beach and San Francisco in California and Sedona and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Each place took my breath away for different reasons, it was so cool to be able to see places that show up all the time in books, movies, and on television. Seeing them in person was a “one day maybe” dream for me, so it was great to have those experiences and share them with my husband.
Q. What’s your favorite book?
A. I love learning, and usually have a few non-fiction books on my nightstand. Some recent favorites are the books Radical Candor and Multipliers.
Q. What’s something you’re passionate about?
A. Two service organizations that are near and dear to my heart are Habitat for Humanity and a local one in Charlotte called Beds for Kids. Both programs work to ensure families have solid foundations in knowledge, skills, and support to manage their households and have seen high success rates with changing family trees. I love being able to share my time with both organizations.
Q. What’s something you would tell yourself 10 years ago?
A. Slow down! Enjoy the moment. Make memories. Time is fleeting.
Q. If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?
A. I’m really not much of a cook. I can somewhat follow a recipe, but I’d like to develop some skill and passion for it!
Q. What are your personal hobbies?
A. I’ve been a runner since my freshman year of highschool and I’ve completed three full marathons (Chicago twice and Charlotte once) and lots of half marathons and 10K’s.
Callie, it’s an absolute honor and joy to have you at EB!
