Industry Spotlight – Andrea Kleid

What is your life verse?
I’ve never liked this question. We change a lot over our lives. Right now, this is speaking to me: Ecclesiastes 3 – “For everything there is a season, A time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.”

Favorite ice cream flavor?
Brambleberry Crisp (Jeni’s)

Who’s your hero?
My mom and Maya Angelou.

How many hours of sleep do you need?
9 is the magic number. 10 on weekends.

If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?
Chips and Salsa all day long

I love podcasting, I love learning through reading and listening to books/podcasts, and I’m a news junkie.

Worst gift you’ve ever received?
Someone once gave me a calendar of “The Office” and I had never seen the show. More random than bad.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Over 50. I love shoes… but not heels anymore. You’re allowed to retire those after 35 years of age. Ladies, here’s your permission slip!

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Sheep stomach lining on a Navajo Reservation.

Toilet paper: over or under?
100% over.

On a scale of 1-10, how funny would you say you are?
