Inevitable errors or mistakes that lead to the phone call with not so great news. Or when you have to find a solution to make it happen which then takes up most of your day!
Your favorite escape from the job?
Trying new restaurants, reality TV shows (mainly those on Bravo and TLC), going to the movies, spending time with my husband, and spoiling my nieces and nephew… in no particular order!
