Amazing Race Q&A
Describe what you do
I manage healthcare software implementations in hospitals and clinics. You probably grew up with paper charts and I am helping replace them, and other electronic medical records, with our software.
How will these skills help you win The Race?
I work with and manage many different people and personalities, and I have a “do what it takes” approach to work and life.
Three words to describe you
Optimistic, driven and outgoing.
Dancing, traveling and intramural sports — volleyball, softball, kickball.
What famous person reminds you of yourself?
Ryan Seacrest — I know he's a guy, but we both get along with everyone and we are very driven, hard-working people.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate?
JFK Jr. because he is smart, sexy, witty, likeable and politically savvy.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?
I'm proud of myself for always being up for trying anything. Life is short and I want to experience as much as I possibly can.
What scares you most about traveling?
Nothing scares me when I travel. I dread hotels without elevators when I'm packing heavy, though.
What excites you most about traveling?
I love to travel! I love experiencing different cultures...people, history, food, animals and shops.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together?
Neither of us likes to be wrong and we are very competitive with each other. I would like to work on being a team and taking each other's advice.
Pet peeve about your teammate
He's insanely anal...obsessive-compulsive anal. Things always have to be neat, clean and exactly how he wants them.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why?
Bora Bora, Tahiti — I've seen pictures and it looks amazing. I would love to stay in one of those huts in the ocean.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)?
I hope to reconnect with Dave. Being away from my husband for a year, with a lack of regular communication and having nothing in common due to our environments was way more difficult than I ever thought it would be.
