5 Questions for Theresa

1. Where can we find you when you’re not working?

Outside. When the weather is warm I like working in the yard or enjoying the outdoors either hiking, golfing or relaxing by the pool. When the weather isn’t so warm, I enjoy coaching CYO Girls Basketball and doing home improvement projects around the house.

2. If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would you have?

Ever since I was a youngster, my dream was to work in journalism, specifically television. But, if that dream had not come true, I think I would have been a high school teacher or a detective.

3. Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? Why?

It’s a tie between riding a bike and driving a car. I belonged to a cycling club when I was eight and we’d frequently go on one-day, 100-mile rides. I also raced bicycles. But, the car is a more efficient form of travel these days.!

4. What would you do if you won the lottery?

I would donate some of the proceeds to help underprivileged youth in Indianapolis. I would travel north to Iceland, east to Turkey, south to St. Lucia and west to Japan. I would NOT retire from IIB. No way.

5. What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?

Knife, raft, sunscreen
