I’m the youngest of three and the only girl, which means I’m used to getting my way by smiling or play fighting. I’m too cute to hit back. My first love will always be the LA Lakers (the Dodgers take a close second). Despite the fact that I plan on staying in the District for the foreseeable future the West Coast will always hold a special place in my heart (plus, I miss my dog). I worked at Starbucks, even though I don't drink coffee, but those skills came in handy when I interned on the Hill and a lobbying firm. I'm simultaneously very responsible, and quite silly. I enjoy any movie with Adam Sandler or Mel Brooks, then again, what Jew doesn't? Tivo is my favorite electronic companion (how else would I watch "Dexter" and "Boardwalk Empire" at the same time?), ESPN is my homepage, and every once in a while I watch C-SPAN for fun.
