Why are you part of the Academy? There was a ton I didn't know when I joined the Academy. I have learned a lot in the 3+ years I have been in the Academy. I look forward to learning more and completing the CCC in the next year.
What do you do in your free time? I enjoy family time with my wife and soon-to-be 5-year-old daughter. We love taking trips to the pool, riding bikes, and hiking.
