Q&A with Sarah Erickson

What is your favorite book of all time? 

Can the whole Harry Potter series count? If I had to choose one, I would say Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

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

Loyola’s beach because it’s always peaceful and never crowded.

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

I’m not a big coffee drinker. I’d have to say Garrett’s!

One thing people in the world wouldn't know about you?

I’m a big fan of The Rolling Stones. Fingers crossed that I can see another one of their concerts before they retire.

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

I’d live in Oregon. I’ve never been there but it seems to be filled with waterfalls, hot springs, mountains, and adventure.
