Meet Your Team

What game or movie universe would you most like to live in?
The Harry Potter universe, provided I could actually go on amazing adventures.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning medal for?
I’d win a medal for wanting to go to the beach. Particularly Seaside Heights, NJ, during the off-season.

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?
I love any sort of craft involving textiles. Embroidery, knitting, sewing with vintage machines, spinning yarn with a drop spindle… particularly because of the memories. My mother taught me to sew when I was four. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was nine. When I work with fabrics and fibers, I am remembering the good times.

What’s the best single day on the calendar?
It’s not a specific day, but it’s usually during the Fall holiday season. It’s when the weather is cool and the days are getting shorter. My family comes to visit. That day we’ll have the perfect lazy morning, when everyone just sits around the kitchen table. We’ll have coffee and just talk, crack jokes and laugh for hours.

If you could see any musician that is either dead or alive, who would it be?
Heart, Bon Jovi, Metallica, AC/DC, Stevie Nicks

What’s your favorite part about being a member of the Life Celebration Team?
My favorite part of being a member of the Life Celebration team is that it is truly a team. Everyone is so willing to help each other with pretty much anything. It is amazing to be able to work with this awesome group of people every day.
