Everyone at FootSteps is genuinely passionate about the work they do here, and as such, everyone is constantly looking for ways to improve processes and innovate better solutions.

My favorite jam homemade strawberry jam tops the list, although I've recently been on a spicy jam kick--raspberry jalapeño jam gives morning toast a great kick!
I never leave home without my iPhone, as cliche as that is. I'm not always obsessively checking email and texting my friends and family; I use my phone as a pocket encyclopedia for all of life's burning questions and a way to track how much exercise I'm getting.
What's your nickname? Most of my close friends and family call me "Jin"--I also happen to be a fan of the beverage.
I totally geek out over technology. I've spent my academic and professional careers studying technology because it's a topic I'm truly passionate about. I love that there's always something new to learn and that things are constantly changing. I also love that we create technology--you truly can be the change you wish to see in the world.
What's an item on your bucket list? Construct a building, preferably one I could live in (at least temporarily). As much as I love building websites and emails, I think building with physical materials is pretty fun, too.
If I could have any superpower, it would be I'd want to fly. In addition to the fact that it would be an efficient form of transportation, I'd love the access to a "bird's eye" view.
