Q&A with Rachel Gulden

What is your favorite book of all time?

Oh the Places You'll Go. I don't know how he does it, but Dr. Suess somehow manages to inspire people no matter their age.

What TV or movie character best exemplifies you and why?

I wish I could say I'm as lovable as Agnes from Despicable Me, but I'm probably more like Margo, her bossy nerdy older sister.

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

My roof. I just can't get enough of that skyline.

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

Starbucks. Grande soy caramel latte please.

What's the funniest thing that has happened to you at Walker Sands?

Watching everyone's true colors come out during a particularly intense came of Catch Phrase.

One thing people wouldn't know about you is?

I watch football for the marching band half time shows.

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

Colorado. I think I was a ski bum in a past life.
