Your adventure starts...where? I'd go anywhere in Europe. I've never been out of the country except a day trip to Tijuana. I imagine the Italian countryside is a tad more romantic.

A great moment for you: Completing my Associate's degree was a great moment for me. My only regret is not pursuing more. I'm always stressing the importance of education to my cousins, nieces and nephews.

Your passions outside of work: I live to cook and entertain. My boyfriend and I are known for throwing the best parties in town and our "Catalina Wine Mixer" is legendary.

Why I live in Utah: Well, I'm a Utah native for starters. Why have I stayed? I love the summers here. Admittedly, the winters can go. If I could live in Southern California during the snowy season, I would.

Best place I've lived: I spent a short stint in Napa. I was in grade school so I didn't get to appreciate it to the fullest (being a wine capital and all). Friends and family still live there so I have an excuse to go back every year.

First job: I bussed tables at a barbeque restaurant. Almost every member of my family worked there at some point. My sister even met her husband there.
