Quick Questions: Kate Swanson

Kate Swanson recently joined the team, so we sat down with her to get the scoop on some of her favorite things.

What’s your job title within the company and when did you get hired?
Assistant Editor at Powersports Business. I started on Feb. 9, 2015 (woohoo 3 months!)

Where do you live?
I live in Burnsville, MN.

Where did you attend college and what was your major?
I went to Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, IA. I graduated in May of 2014.

What’s the one thing they didn’t teach you in school that you wish they had?
Time management….something like Liberal Arts 100: “How to sleep and STILL get everything done”. 🙂

Do you have any pets?
I have one dog named Wesley. He’s a rescued dachshund beagle mix that I adopted almost a year ago. He’s awesome and I’m a bit obsessed.

What is your absolute favorite breakfast food?
My favorite breakfast food is hash browns. I’ve actually just ordered that for breakfast before.

What’s your favorite day of the week and why?
I really like Thursdays because it’s Friday-Eve. Thursday is kind of the hipster of the weekdays, no one really recognizes how awesome it is until later (Sorry, millennial joke.)

Name some of your hobbies.
I enjoy writing (surprise), reading, singing, tennis, running (more tolerate than enjoy), watching movies, hanging out with friends and spending time with family. I’m also learning to cook and I like spending time outside in the summer.

Name the most interesting place you’ve traveled to.
When I was 18, I traveled to Ireland and kissed the Blarney Stone for good luck. I’d love to go back again someday. For now, I’m staying stateside and saving up for the next travel-bug trip.

If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Nerd alert: Huge x-men fan. I’d be like Storm and manipulate the weather with my mind. Or Elsa from Frozen. It’s a toss-up.
