What inspires you to come to work each day?
Balentine’s welcoming environment, combined with anticipation about learning something new, are both huge motivators.
What do you like to do in your down time away from work?
One of my biggest passions is Greek dancing, which I have been doing since I was four years old. Traditional costumes and music are paired with choreographed steps to form such an expressive experience. It’s the best way for me to bond with my culture!
Where is the most exotic place you have ever been?
Lunahuaná, Peru. I stayed in a country house where the organic garden onsite has over 300 species of plants. Down the road, I was able to go zip lining from mountain to mountain, ATV riding around town, and white-water rafting.
What is your favorite sport or activity? Why?
I love to watch football, both NCAA and NFL (Go Gators! Go Eagles!). I also love to play Ultimate Frisbee. If you think about it, it’s a mixture of football, soccer, and basketball, and there’s hardly any downtime while playing.
If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have?
The ability to be multiple places at once.
