What is your favorite book? Why would you recommend it to others?

Too many to choose just one but I frequently return to Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s Gift from the Sea which reflects on the everyday struggles of motherhood, career, and relationships.  My favorite line “This is what one thirsts for, I realize, after the smallness of the day, of work, of details, of intimacy - even of communication, one thirsts for the magnitude and universality of a night full of stars, pouring into one like a fresh tide.”

What is your spirit animal and why?

A fox. Playful, nimble, and a bit mischievous. Foxes use all their skills to solve problems – I like to think I do too.

If you could have coffee with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

Melinda Gates. I deeply admire the work of the Gates Foundation, especially on women’s issues. I would appreciate listening and learning about being a change agent on a global scale.

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

I would pick the power to apparate/ teleport. It would save so much time on travel and I could go anywhere, so quickly.

If you were a Disney character, who would you be and why?

I would choose Belle because I love reading, and like her I went against the norms in my town growing up.

What is your favorite social media platform?

I would choose Facebook because I love the wide variety of features that it offers and because it is the most widely used among my friends and family. It is a great way to connect with my family and friends.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?

Watch a Green Bay Packers game on TV, when we get them here in Tennessee; enjoy a warm day at the pool with my kids and neighbors; read a book outside while my kids run around with their friends; or bake some zucchini bread with my two little kitchen helpers.  

What places are on your travel bucket list?

It’s hard to narrow it down! Mount Everest Base Camp (I don’t want to climb Mount Everest, but it fascinates me. I’d love to see it up close), Sydney, Tuscany, Switzerland, Prague, Munich, Cairo, Machu Picchu, the Grand Canyon, Thailand.

What is your favorite book? Why would you recommend it to others?

Gone With The Wind. It has everything – drama, fear, romance, hope, and perseverance. It reminds me of how different of a world we live in now – how far humanity has come, but also how very far we have to go. I’ve read it 5 times and find something new every time.

What is your spirit animal and why?

My spirit animal is the red panda.  Red pandas, like me, are gentle, even-tempered, and resourceful. I appreciate having time to myself, but I also thrive being around others.

What is your favorite travel souvenir? Why is it special to you?  

My favorite travel souvenir is my Gluhwein mug from the Christmas Market in Bielefeld, Germany. I lived in Bielefeld for a year while working as a Fulbright Teaching Assistant. I remember walking through the downtown market every day from November-December on my way to school, taking in the sights, smells, and cheer of the holiday season.

Who do you admire and why?

I admire my parents. They have always supported me and encouraged me to work hard and pursue my passions. For example, when I was a horse-crazy teenager, they told me that they would help me buy my first horse if I saved up $1000. After working at the stable for a summer, I saved up the money, and they helped me purchase my horse, Maddie. My mom (not a horse person) even became a stellar “show mom.”  They also taught me how to be a caring and compassionate person with strong values.

If you could have coffee with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

I think I would enjoy having coffee with Nikola Tesla; his ideas and innovations were profound and ahead of his time. I can’t imagine that conversation being boring!

What is your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?

On Sundays I’m either tending to the garden or curled up (preferably outside) with a good book enjoying a few moments of downtime.

If you were a Disney character, who would you be and why?

Chicha from The Emperor’s New Groove has it all: she’s strong, independent, a little sassy, and doesn’t put up with shenanigans!
