What music do you listen to when you're working?
On any given day you can usually find me listening to 90s pop (Britney, ‘Nsync, or Alanis), classic rock (U2, The Cars and Billy Joel are some of my favorites) or some top 40.
What's one piece of jewelry you never leave home without?
I never leave home without my teal monogram Auburn Jewelry pendant and my 14k gold hammered midi ring.
If you had to choose, would it be gold or silver?
