Tell us something interesting about where you live.

Mountain biking was invented in Marin County during the 1970s.

What are you passionate about?

I have varying degrees of passion, but I am most passionate about being a mother to my 4-year old son, Richard. Followed closely behind is my passion for the outdoors. Oh! And my work in PR. I absolutely love helping entrepreneurs achieve their goals.

What book are you currently reading?

A biography about Ulysses S. Grant. Turns out his real name was Hiram Ulysses Grant. No one knows where the “S” originated.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Man, there are so many things to chose from but I’d say the time a chartered a banner plane on election day November 2008 that said, “For this to work, you must vote today,” to encourage people to get out and vote for Obama. There were fears turnout would be low because he was considered a shoe-in. Since I did not specify who to vote for, I didn’t break any election laws.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?


If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

I was going to say the ability to read people’s mind but that sounds terrifying. So maybe the ability to fly?

I can do a spot-in impersonation of Jack Nicholson.

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

Love Shack by the B-52s

What are your biggest pet peeves?

Aggressive drivers, unless I am the one being aggressive and then obviously it’s slow drivers.

Ninja or Pirate?
