Fun Facts

  • Myself, in three words or less:

    High on life.

  • One thing I wish I knew before having kids:

    How much they like and need structure. I used to be pretty carefree! But schedules and discipline are key for kids' well-being.

  • The amount of coffee I drink in a day:

    I am fueled by one cup of iced coffee every morning, year round. Even on three-degree days. Fantasy job: owning an iced-coffee bar.
