Q&A with Kiley Ribordy

What is your favorite book of all time?

It’s so hard to choose -- I have so many favorites! As of right now I’d have to say And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, because I’ve been on a mystery novels kick.

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

Other than the incredible museums here, I’d have to say Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder -- it’s a whole new kind of pizza, and it’s delicious.

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

Why have coffee when you can have cheese popcorn and caramel corn at the same time?

One thing people wouldn't know about you is:

I’ve always grown up with a ton of pets: dogs, cats, horses, birds, a ferret, bunnies, etc. The all-time high we had at one time was 24 -- that only includes one fish!

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

London! I have family around Liverpool, and it’s such a beautiful city.
