Do you have any favorite restaurants or local cuisine within your travel region? What do you do with your scant free time when you’re on the road?

My favorite restaurant in Maryland is Miss Shirley's Cafe. I love soul food. In my little free time, I drop into Crossfit Gyms because it's a great way to meet the local community and get in a great workout.

Let’s talk about RVA. What do you like about living here? What are your favorite things to do in the city/region? What should visitors be sure to check out?

I love the people and the family environment. Everyone is so welcoming here, which made my transition really smooth. I'd recommend anyone visiting to check out the food scene, because there's something delicious for everybody, no matter your preference!
