Volunteer at Warrenton Baptist Church.
• How long have you lived in Fauquier?
Twenty-two years, my whole life.
• Why do you live here?
I like how it’s a close-knit community. You can go to a grocery store and see people you know. It’s small enough and big enough.
• How do you describe this county?
Wonderful! I love Fauquier. We have a little bit of everything. We have the country and the Town of Warrenton — the busier section.
• What would you change about Fauquier?
More things for kids to do; more places to hang out. I remember as a teen driving all the way to Manassas to go to the movies, and now the bowling alley is closed. Maybe add a movie theatre and renovate and re-open the bowling alley.
• What do you do for fun?
I play indoor soccer and I go to the gym.
• What’s your favorite place in Fauquier?
• What will Fauquier be like in 10 years?
A little more congested with traffic and people coming here. More homes being built and more construction.
• Favorite TV show?
“Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Bachelorette.”
• Favorite Movie?
• Favorite book?
•Favorite vacation spot?
• Favorite flavor of ice cream?
• Who’s your hero and why?
My mom is my hero because she is awesome and she has a strong character. She is a supportive role model for my brother and I. We can always go talk to her.
• What would you do if you won $1 million in the lottery?
Invest in those who invested in me. Give to children’s charities such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and autism charities. Buy things for my parents. Return favors for people in the county who have done things for me. Give back to the community.
