7 Fun Facts About Me

#1 – I was born and raised in NY but have never been to NYC.

City energy is a lot. I am a mountain and water kind of lady.

#2 – I’m left-handed, but everyone in my family is right-handed.

They tried to teach me to shoot hoops and bat right-handed. To this day, I still get confused when I pick up a basketball or go to bat.

#3 – My nickname growing up was Ally.

When I go home to visit, my parents’ close friends still call me that.

#4 – I’m terrified of dogs and snakes.

I’ve been bitten numerous times by dogs, so that’s enough for me. Snakes? Well… yuck! I’m settling into a cat lady role.

#5 – My greatest social work skills were learned at an inner-city convenient store in upstate NY.

I worked my way through high school, college, and grad-school through this grassroots experience. I ran my own version of a foodbank and soup-kitchen out of the backdoors of that convenient store trying to make a difference the best way I could.

#6 – I still use a day planner, and probably always will despite the latest technology.

I’m a firm believer in ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. Technology is not my strength so the paper day planner has always worked for me. I ‘m a tactile learner, and love the feeling of holding my schedule in my hands (probably a sense of control). I get very excited every year to pick out my new book, but have always settled in with the same book each year.

#7 – You will see a very different side of me if I am behind you driving slowly in the fast lane.

I’ve been known to be a bit feisty, and I’m a strong advocate for fairness. Breaking the rules has it’s time and place, but not in the fast lane!
