Q&A with Jennifer Mulligan

What is your favorite book of all time?

East of Eden by John Steinbeck.

What TV or movie character best exemplifies you and why?

Robin Scherbatsky from How I Met Your Mother because she moved to a large city from a small town for her career, works in communications and is driven.

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

Cafe Ba Ba Reeba in Lincoln Park is my favorite restaurant. Their sangria and paella are amazing!

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett's popcorn?

Is this a real question? Starbucks all the way!

The funniest thing to ever happen to you at Walker Sands was?

I came back from vacation to find my desk completely covered in wrapping paper! Turns out my intern and coworkers missed me.

One thing people wouldn't know about you is?

I'm from Alabama, but I don't sound like it. Roll Tide!

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would you live?

Chicago, of course! Or any beach in Greece.
