NEW! This new blog will feature different partners. Learn new fun tidbits about our partners! Let’s kick it off with someone you may know, but probably didn’t know these fun facts about…
Q: What was the best piece of advice you ever received? From whom?
A: On the day I drove off with my mother to Scripps College my Freshman year, my father said to me, “Above all: to thine own self be true.” I’ll never forget that great piece of advice.
Q: Who is your favorite children’s book character and why?
A: I love Horton of Horton Hears a Who. I think I identify with Horton because he is an idealist, a believer and always fighting for those little people in Whoville!
Q: Describe your idea of the perfect way to spend a Saturday.
A: The perfect Saturday for me would be to have my family with me , Brian my husband and my two daughters Samantha (8) and Katherine (10). The weather would be perfect so we could be outside in the pool or in the garden! I would end the day with dinner with friends – again sitting outside on the patio with food from the grill and maybe some cool margaritas!
Q: What was the best vacation you ever took? Who was with you? What did you do?
A: When I worked for Up With People (where I met my husband), Brian and I would take mini-vacations when we were in interesting spots around the globe. My favorite excursion was to Basel, Switzerland where Brian attended services with a Jewish family he had met when he had stayed in Basel years before. Later, we ate dinner in a simple Italian restaurant (the best Tortellini ala Panna I ever ate!) with white paper table cloths and long “community” tables. In the evening we roamed the streets and bars – I am pretty sure we saw the sunrise!
