What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

I think how large the universe is. It would be awesome to travel to the different galaxies like they do in Star Trek. Endless possibilities.

Favorite season and why?

I love all 4 seasons but Fall is my favorite because the colors are changing on the leaves. I grew up in New England and loved going leaf peeping and jumping in the leaves when I was a kid.

Both. My spiritual walk is very important to me. I believe that having a personal relationship with Jesus and studying the Bible are important to a solid Christian life. We are Seventh Day Adventist
