help you win The Race?
Through my corporate job, I have been faced with challenging adversity, taking calculated risks and making quick informed decisions. My job is also highly competitive and you must have a strong desire to win with solid performance. All of these skills are vital to winning The Race and I'm confident I can bring it to win it.

Three words to describe you: Determined, dedicated and passionate.

Favorite hobbies: Exercising, cooking and planning. I like to plan anything and everything.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? I'm told that I'm a replica of Lucy Liu, but I would like to be similar to Lauren Conrad from "The Hills." She is very entrepreneurial, highly accomplished, likeable and friendly.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Zach Morris from "Saved By The Bell." Ernie loves to be the center of the action and he's a big jokester.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I was crowned Homecoming Queen at my undergraduate university.

What scares you most about traveling? Lack of control—I'm gluten-free and it can often be a challenge to find suitable foods in new locations, especially places where there's a language barrier.

What excites you most about traveling? I love meeting local people and understanding more about their culture and daily rituals. I find it fascinating that we are all humans, but have very different ways of living a happy life.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Ernie needs to be more direct with me. He is so easy going that he goes along with what I want, but I don't know if that's really what he wants.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He's a really happy-go-lucky person with a positive attitude and outlook on life, but for some crazy reason he always gives me some round-about answer to any of my questions.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? India! I love the rich culture and history of India. I would love to see the Taj Mahal, explore the 'triangle' and see the white sandy beaches of Goa.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope we will learn a lot about each other through this process. Our goal is to become entrepreneurs together and The Race will give us a solid opportunity to test our working relationship and see if we can actually work together.
