What does a perfect day look like to you? A day balanced with family, friends, exercise and feeling productive.
What was your most embarrassing moment? I’m a clutz. It’s not just one moment! I recently let a drippy stick of butter slide off a plate onto the deck steps at a picnic where I didn’t want to embarrass myself in any way.
Best compliment you have received? That I gave a great presentation. It was something I was scared to do but I made myself do it.
Why did you choose this profession? To make a positive difference in people’s daily lives.
What age do you feel right now and why? I feel younger because I’ve let go of all the notions of being perfect and ‘what life should be.’ But I look in the mirror and see my age!
If you could only keep 5 possessions, what would they be? Cell phone, hair straightener, supply of fountain Diet Coke, my favorite lip balm, and sense of humor – you can’t lose this as you go through life!
