  1. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
    A small cottage-style home nestled among large trees, within close proximity to a body of water.
  1. What was your favorite subject in school?
    Psychology. I took almost every psych-related class my school offered. I found the topic so fascinating.
  1. If you could have a super power, what would it be and why?
    Not needing to sleep. You would get 1/3 of your life back!
  1. Do you have any pets? What are they and their names?
    Yes, my husband and I have a rescue cat named Melina. She likes belly rubs and stealing our pizza crust when we’re not looking.
  1. What is your favorite book to read?
    I love psychological thrillers. They keep me on the edge of my seat with plot twists, unreliable narrators, and cliffhangers.
  1. What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
    I’m a pretty risk-averse person, so the most daring thing I’ve done is ride on the back of a motorcycle.
  1. What would you do if you won the lottery?
    Put most of it into savings, then buy a house and travel around Europe.
  1. What is the kindest thing anyone has ever done for you?
    My mom made me a scrapbook as a wedding present. It contained pictures of me with all of the important people in my life along with notes of advice they each had written for a long & happy marriage. I will treasure it forever!
  1. What is your favorite quote?
    “A year from now, you will wish you had started today.” -Karen Lamb

    Windchimes on a sunny summer day.
