3. I live in Mayfield Heights with my new husband Dan (August 2020) and our small dog daughter, Marla Hooch.

4. I'm a pop culture aficionado and I dream of this one day being rewarded on a game show or high stakes trivia night.

5. My personal ministry aim is to always see and seek for God in connections with people.

Five things about Ean: 

1. I'm a pastor's kid, which we abbreviate to PK.

2. I not only have a twin brother, but my youngest brother is 16 years younger than me.

3. I am a student at Case Western Reserve University, which is ironic since I'm from Michigan but now I'm a spartan in Ohio.
