1. What’s your job title?

Visitor Engagement

2. Favorite Dixon exhibition so far?

Present Tense: Memphis Artists of the Future Juried Student Show. I was amazed at the talent of the students and I love that we like to show off local artists.

3. Favorite plant/flower in the gardens?

It’s hard to pick just one, but I love our variety of lilies.

4. Favorite Memphis restaurant?

Hog & Hominy—their beef and cheddar hotdog on a pretzel bun puts your everyday hotdog to shame (and for dessert, cupcakes from Muddy’s of course!).

5. Tigers or Grizzlies?

Pittsburgh Penguins. I haven’t lived in Memphis long enough to pick a side. :D

6. What’s something people might be surprised to know about you?

I love to cook and I really enjoy trying new and bizarre foods—while in Scotland this past September, I fell in love with haggis (a mixture of minced sheep innards, onion, and spices) and blood sausage (a sausage of sorts made with cooked blood, barley, and oatmeal).
