Favorite anecdote associated with being on the show:
I worked on an ambulance for a year and a half. During that time I transported a 103 year-old woman, noted as the oldest resident of Manhattan Beach. She had broken her hip. While we were talking this very sharp woman said she thought I looked familiar. Since I get that all the time I thought nothing of it. After we got to her house it was revealed that she was a huge Jeopardy! fan. When she realized who I was, she became elated. It made her day. It's nice to be of service.

Is there anything else you would like viewers to know about you?
I have been an Emergency Medical Technician since 2002, working first as an ambulance driver, and currently as a set EMT for film and TV production.

My winnings will probably go toward getting a nursing degree.
