What is your job at It’s Just Lunch? Director/Matchmaker
What is your favorite park of working for It’s Just Lunch? I’m so blessed to work with talented, inspiring, and empowered women. We change lives every day and give people an opportunity to meet people that they wouldn’t meet on their own. I can’t think of anything more rewarding.
Who is your favorite celebrity couple? Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. They seem to genuinely like each other and I bet they laugh a lot.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work? I love my friends and family. I spend as much time with them as possible. I don’t care what I’m doing…It’s absolutely about who you’re with.
What is the best piece of advice you could offer to singles that are ready to enter the dating scene? Don’t wait forever. You can make a million excuses as to why it’s not the right time, but ultimately everything will fall into place once you get out there and start meeting people.
What’s your favorite restaurant in Denver? Denver has an incredible foodie scene. I could never pick one! BUT I do love Brunches. Anywhere that serves a great brunch is for me!
What is your dream date? Anything involving a little bit of adventure. Trying something new. I’m all about experiences.
Do you have a mantra that you live by? Let Annie be Annie. (Insert your name) Don’t be afraid to be yourself.
What’s your favorite memory from working at It’s Just Lunch? There are new memories every day! I love getting calls from clients when they meet that right person. You can hear them smiling through the phone.
What are your top 3 dating tips?
A) Take every opportunity. Even if you don’t think there’s a spark at first, there’s something wonderful and interesting about each person. Ask them questions and find out what it is. You can learn something from everyone.
B) Be a good listener. It shows respect.
C) Eye contact. Shows you’re confident.
