Favorite show anecdote:
I had just started dating the man I'm now married to when I got called back for the Tournament of Champions. I think it was probably the most unique reason he'd ever heard for breaking a date.

How did being on Jeopardy! affect your life?
Managed to graduate from Syracuse University without student debt, and funded a semester at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.
