Buffinda34…WHO IS SHE? Let’s Find Out!

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis: It’s #Buffinda34. I’m the youngest of 5 kids & born at a time siblings didn’t come up to the hospital. They asked my Dad what I looked like, to which he responded, “A Buffy,” because of my blond fuzz for hair. It stuck & morphed into other nicknames off of the original.It’s a homage to my Dad, who unfortunately died from a heart attack when I was 13. As for 34, it’s always been my fav #, from it being the basketball # for a guy I had a crush on in HS (who didn’t know I existed) to currently Jonny Lester’s # for my beloved Cubbies.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Just how grateful I am for this tribe and Jenn. I know so many other people say the same, but between her love of music(and 99% of it that I love singing along to as well), the importance of the rhythm of the music, her frequent F bombs, her warmth, her love of alma mater, and her love of her kids, I know I’ve found my home. THANK YOU.
