Where is your favorite place in the world?

Lynsey: Siesta Key! When I was a kid my family and I would go to Siesta Key a lot because my grandparents lived in Sarasota, Florida. I used to visit every them every summer so I guess it’s kind of like I grew up there. I always look forward to going down and visiting for family reunions.

Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Lynsey: Honestly, I don’t like to think that I’m either one. I hate going to bed late, and I hate waking up early. I’ve started going to bed at a decent hour, but I still dislike waking up early so I’m trying to get used to it.

In 5 years I will be…

Lynsey: In 5 years I will be married, and hopefully I’ll have at least one kid. I will probably still be living here in Dayton, because I want to have my mom around to see my kids. I’m still not sure what I want to do work-wise, but I hope to have a stable job in finance where I am still able to work with people.

What are you absolutely determined to do?

Lynsey: I am determined to graduate from college!! It’s taken me awhile, but I am also currently working three different jobs full-time. I’ve already been in school for four and a half years, so hopefully I’ll be able to graduate soon!

What is the most interesting thing about you?

Lynsey: I think the most interesting thing about me is that I go to school full-time and I work three jobs full-time. I am always busy, but somehow I’m still able to find time to hang out with my family. That is super important to me because I am a very family-oriented person!
