Position and time at Graco: Public Relations and Social Media Manager – I’ve been at Graco for two years already. Wow, time flies!

Growing up, I always dreamed of being: A writer. I absolutely loved creative writing and would always make up stories and write my own “books.” I guess I was onto something because I do a LOT of writing here at Graco :-)

If I starred on “America’s Got Talent,” my act would be: Singing (but I would have to just stand there because I have ZERO dance moves.)

The most adventurous thing I’ve ever done: Running a half-marathon in San Francisco.

My ideal vacation would be: Beautiful scenery, delicious food and wine, and my husband by my side. I like vacations where there is a lot to do and see. Sitting on the beach is nice too, but I like to get out and be a part of the action!

Favorite childhood memory: All of our Christmas traditions. Every year my sister and I would wake up in the middle of the night, sneak downstairs and look at all of the presents we got from Santa. Then the next morning we would wake up around 6 a.m. (sorry mom & dad!) and wait until my parents said it was OK to come downstairs – we always thought we were SO devious because we had already snuck down to see everything (as if my parents didn’t already know). Then we would tear into our stockings, take a little break for breakfast, and then each get to open a present, one-by-one, until they were all gone. We would eat Christmas cookies at 8 a.m. and the day was always filled with so much laughter and love. We still carry on a lot of those traditions, and I can’t wait to start the same ones with my kids someday.

Dish of choice when dining out: Scallops. I’m obsessed with scallops. I think I will order some tonight.

Favorite product and why: I absolutely love the Graco SnugRide car seats. Every time I see a new baby in their SnugRide, I can’t help but feel giddy at how sweet and cozy they look.
