Getting to know: Lacie McElvana
You get to invite three living people to dinner. Who would receive an invitation? Why?      
I would invite my two best friends, Tate and Ashley, and my sister Cynda. I love spending time with all of them but 2/3 live in another state. It would be great to be able to see them all in one place and get to catch up with them in person.
If you were a Disney character, which would you be and why?
I would be Ariel from the little mermaid. I love going to the beach and I could stay in the water all day long. If I was a mermaid, I’d never have to leave.
Is there a TV show that you watch on a regular basis?
I don’t even know how many times I have rewatched Gilmore Girls or Futurama. Futurama is great for when I need a laugh and Gilmore Girls is just perfect all year round. I always have to watch the winter episodes of Gilmore Girls during Christmas time.
Would you rather be an unknown Broadway actor, or a famous professional badminton star? Why?
I’d rather be a Broadway actor. I took an acting class in college. I’m pretty sure I was horrible, but it was so much fun!
If you were given the opportunity for free skydiving lessons would you take them? Why or why not?
I would absolutely take the free lessons. I’m terrified of heights, but I think that’s what would make it a fun experience. I’m the kind of person who likes to confront my fears and it’s always been worth it!
