Who Knows Me Best
My sisters and my best friend know me better than anyone else. Oh, and my therapist.
I like happy surprises. Who doesn’t like something happy happening?
What Makes Me Nervous
Everything. I coach myself through it. But, really, everything makes me nervous.
My End of Day Routine
When I finish my professional day, I put on loungy clothes. Nothing like comfy clothes to shed the day.
When I'm at My Best
I’m at my best when I’m organized and prepared. For whatever comes my way.
Losing Touch with Old Friends
I haven’t talked to Barbie since college, when we still called her Barbie. I deeply regret losing touch with her. She doesn’t come to class reunions, either.
Top Albums I Listened to While Growing Up
I don’t listen to as much 80s pop. But I sure played the hell out of the Police albums.
A New Book Recommendation
Stack of old books I suggested a few books for my reading group. One of my selections is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Another was Watermark: A Novel Of The Middle Ages. I haven’t read either yet.
The News That Interests Me Most
I turn first to the Style section. Then I look at the Local section and the World news. I usually glance at the financial section, especially the local paper.
If I Had the World's Attention for Two Minutes
Education is the key to the future. Professionals must be allowed to make the changes necessary, instead of out-of-touch politicians.
Paper or Digital?
At meetings and conferences, I prefer writing on paper. I tend to keep electronic journals.
What I Wish I Had Done Differently in School
I wish I had been more serious about my undergrad classes and that I applied myself instead of taking it all for granted. And I wish I had a desire to get an advanced degree. But I really don’t.
Books regularly bring me to tears. I finished one last week called Unsaid by Neil Abramson that was so beautifully written and so moving, that I was teary-eyed when I finished it.
