Get to Know Cat

What’s your go-to coffee or tea drink? 

I love an iced coffee with a splash of milk any time of the year! 

Which marine animal deserves a shout-out? Why? 

I think the frogfish deserves a shout out! Those adorable, funny-looking creatures have such personality and to me their mouth makes them look perpetually grumpy. 

What are you listening to or reading right now?

Currently I’m reading The Story of the Earth in 25 Rocks: Tales of Important Geological Puzzles and the People Who Solved Them, a fascinating read on major geological events that gave us context to solve questions about our planet! 

Favorite shows or podcasts to binge? 

My go-to favorite shows are Star Trek: Next Generation and Always Sunny in Philadelphia, both are great for a laugh

It’s Saturday at 2pm - what are you most likely up to?

Hopefully, I’m on a mountain either snowboarding or hiking, taking in the sounds and  views  of nature and becoming re-inspired!
