What is the best and worst gift you ever received? All gifts are good gifts in my book, but I would have to say my Jeep was the best graduation present.
If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to? I have always really liked the name Peyton, but I don’t think I’d want to change my name unless someone forced me to.
What excites you the most about working at Golden Key? Meeting new people and making lasting connections excites me. I am also looking forward to traveling to new places and spreading the GK knowledge!
Fun Fact: I have a desire to do everything adventurous, but my fear of heights and all things dangerous limits me. Therefore, I have been challenging myself this year to try new things and say “yes” more.
