Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. She, who can make her friends laugh, is blessed.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I admire a number of people, but most especially, people like Amy Purdy (the para-Olympian who lost both her legs and kidneys as a teenager.)  She has overcome unimaginable odds to not only walk again, but play sports at such a high level and dance more beautifully than anyone I have ever seen!  She gives me chills.  What an inspiration!  She should give us all hope that nothing is impossible!

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. My three, beautiful children

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Jane Eyre - a woman of substance and humility and courage and intelligence. She faced opposition from nearly all the men in her life and yet, rose above the chauvinistic world in which she lived.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That something bad will happen to my children.
