Hometown: Portland, Oregon.

Hobbies: Music, Sports (Football & Hockey), and Traveling.

Book you’ve read over and over again:

  1. The Monk and the Philosopher by Jean-Francois Revel
  2. Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl
  3. Something Borrowed (and then Something Blue) by Emily Giffin
  4. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

Top movies/shows: 

  1. City Island (if you haven’t seen it – you MUST! It’s hysterical)
  2. Schitts Creek and The Office (my top two favorite TV Series)
  3. Hamilton (not a movie I know – but since it’s on Disney+, I have to mention it)

A bit about your family: Proud Momma of a 13-year-old boy – going on 20. Our family is spread all over: Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, Arizona, and Oklahoma. My family is everything to me and wish I could see them all more often.

Favorite food: Currently anything loaded with Roasted Veggies. Typically, I swing towards anything Asian or Italian.

Thing you’re scared of:  Spiders.

Worst habit: Being too hard on myself.

Dream vacation: I would take a couple months off. During the first month, my son and I would hit as many scenic bypasses and national parks as possible. In my 20s I did a 3-week, 14 state road trip and it was AMAZING. The second month would include an extensive trip with my son all over Japan and South Korea.

Favorite cocktail:

  1. My ultimate special treat is a Super Tuscan from Tenuta San Guido, called Sassicaia. (Varietal: Sangiovese. Region: Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy.)
  2. Otherwise, my go-tos are a good IPA or well-made Margarita (no mixers).
