Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Breathe deeply

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Where I am.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. When my husband was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia, I realized that I would have to access my highest self to be able to care for him properly. And I did. Not that there weren't slips and frustrations, but I loved hving to reach alwasy for more patience, more understanding, more strength and more humor during those years.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My height. I'm five eleven, and it's funny because I never feel tall, but whenever I see photos of myself I think, wow, I'm tall. People must notice that about me.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. One-upsmanship. The trouble is that I'm usually unaware when it's started, so at first I think I need to reach for a one-up of my own. I never have one ready and luckily I can then see how ridiculous the whole thing is.
