Pets: No pets right now.

Occupation: Co-owner and hairstylist of Guys N Gals Salon.

What is the last song you listened to: “Treasure” by Bruno Mars.

What is the last book you read: “I Love You So Much” (children’s book).

What is the last television show you watched: “Rizzoli and Isles.”

If you were stranded on a desert island and could have just one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be: Cheeseburger, French fries and chocolate chip cookies.

If you were stranded on a desert island and could take only one thing with you, what would it be: My family.

If someone handed you a million dollars, how would you spend it: I would finish our house projects, pay off debts, go on vacation and save the rest for my children.

People would be surprised to know that you: I am a little bit of a “handyman.” I like to fix things myself and not rely on others. I learned a lot in that department from my dad, the late Danny Sissel.

What is your favorite thing about the city you live in: I like the quaintness and the traditions like Homestead. Most of my family is close, and I have some really great friends.

If you could change one thing about your town, what would it be: I’d really like to see all the storefronts filled, and I’d love to see an old fashioned diner downtown.
