Where do you work?
I’m the owner of Jhey Photo + Design (pronounced jay-hay).
How long have you been a board member? What made you decide to get involved?
This is my first year! I joined after being asked by EVP of Programming Mandy Peterson (if you’re reading this Mandy…hey-o!).
What do you do in your free time?
Tennis. Lots — and lots — of tennis. I don’t play as much as I used to but I love spending my time on the court coaching the next generation of all-stars!
What professional achievement are you most proud of?
Building my business! Being a business owner isn’t easy — but it’s incredibly rewarding. (AMA plug — we won our first Prism award in 2021!)
What personal achievement are you most proud of?
Being a cat mom. 🙂 Shout out to Joey!
You can snap your fingers and instantly learn any skill. What is it?
Learning another language. Or breakdancing. You pick — I can’t decide.
What’s your favorite TV show or movie?
Anything in the Marvel or Star Wars universe. I’ve been living on Disney+. Before you ask, Captain America is my favorite superhero and The Empire Strikes Back and Rogue One switch between my favorite Star Wars movies.
You’re at a bar — what are you ordering?
Gin & tonics or (in true Liz Lemon fashion) asking if they have mozzarella sticks.
Any favorite books or podcasts?
No to the books. I need recommendations…and more free time. I do listen to wayyyy too many podcasts to list on here but my top three are The RingerVerse, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, and All Fantasy Everything.
What advice do you have for young professionals in the area?
Say yes to any professional opportunities! You never know who you might meet, what you may learn, or how you’ll be inspired!
What’s your favorite part about Lincoln?
The small-town feel and big-city opportunities.
