Q&A with Barbie
Where is your favorite place in town to eat, and what do you get there?
One of my current favorites is Cafe Yumm and I always get a small original Yumm bowl with chicken breast.
Who is your hero, and why?
I am a massive fan of the pop artist, Pink! (also known as Alecia Moore). Aside from her ridiculous musical talent, she is the epitome of a woman who values herself and her own values over the opinions of others. She also is a work in progress and doesn’t shy away from her human-ness. I love that she models self-love, creativity, power, and vulnerability all in one. To me, she stands as at true example for young girls and women everywhere that you get to be all of you and still be successful in life.
What draws you to the lending industry?
I love helping people feel happy.
What does your dream Saturday look like?
A perfect Saturday for me starts with coffee and puppy snuggles, a run in the sunshine and time spent with family either hiking one of the many beautiful locations here in the Pacific Northwest or lounging around the Farmer’s Market. I love to explore new places to too. Either in the Portland area or along the waterfront in Vancouver, I enjoy grabbing brunch in a place where I can people watch and enjoy a yummy meal and drink.
