Family: She married her high school sweetheart Nathan Titus. They have two pet birds named Sampson and Snow.
Inspiration: “My dad wasn’t a teacher, but he worked with kids with special needs and helping them transition from school to a job. I was really inspired by that because a lot of times people look past those kids. He also coached sports, and I was always at a school somewhere.”
Passion for history: Titus recalls of her love of history in high school saying, “I took the AP (Advanced Placement) exam for every [AP] history [except AP European History] without actually taking the class. I couldn’t fit it in my schedule.”
Hobbies: She enjoys watching Netflix and playing with her birds. In college she enjoyed competing on a rugby team, but in high school she was in marching and concert band.
Guilty pleasure: “Watching terrible TV. Watching crappy MTV shows and crappy Bravo shows, that type of thing.”
