Where’s your favorite place to vacation? Why?
I like to be adventurous on vacation, so anywhere I can try a new experience, I’m in! From rock climbing, to scuba diving, to running with the bulls, vacation for me is a time to have an adventure.
What do you do for fun?
I have two young kids, so for fun I build a lot of car washes out of legos, serve tea for tea parties, chase Spiderman, and read Goodnight Moon seven times in a row.
Who inspires you? Why?
My kids. They are so unapologetically themselves. There is nothing more inspiring them watching them learn and grow and gain likes and dislikes. They inspire me daily.
What’s the best book you’ve read recently?
I just read The People We Keep. It’s beautifully written and talks to the imprints that people make in our lives, and how meaningful even the smallest interactions and relationships are as we carry them with us the rest of our lives.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I think I wanted to be a dancer. And then an artist. And then a writer. I think I just wanted to do something creative that connected me with others on a deeper level.
