What about you would most people not believe unless they knew you?
Most people are surprised to learn that I grew up on a dairy farm in Northern Wisconsin. I absolutely loved my childhood, which was primarily spent outdoors. I learned to love and respect the world around me – and how to work hard!
What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
Spending time with my husband and two kids (currently 4 and 6). We try to get out for a hike almost every weekend, even in winter. In fact, we just began a family challenge to spend 1,000 hours outside in the next year! We also plan to visit all the National Parks as a family.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
I love to travel, so two of my bucket list items are to visit Machu Picchu and to hike the Cinque Terre. The other is to write a book!
What’s your favorite drink or cocktail?
A well muddled Old Fashioned, Wisconsin style (with Brandy).
In another life, I’m pretty sure I was…
A Parisian writer who drank Absinthe and hung out with Henry Miller and Anais Nin.
