When she is not giving grief to everyone in her lab, she likes to bake especially fancy cakes. As well as sharing her cakes, she likes to consume and share large quantities of chocolates because, why not! Chocolate is the currency for everything. The guilt of consuming so much chocolate has also led her to develop a passion for running and exercising to burn off the calories!
