Favorite food(s)Just can't narrow this one down because I like to eat too much!

Favorite movie(s)I'm going classic, Sound of Music, and cheesy, Drop Dead Gorgeous

Favorite TV show(s)West Wing is my all-time favorite, Mad Men is a close second.

Favorite book(s): Love to cook, so pretty fond of my cookbook collection. Defined Dish is a current favorite. Everyone should have it. I have to buy it for my friends if I find out they do not own it!

What celebrity would you absolutely HAVE to go up and say something to if you saw them out and about?

I love Katie Couric and I’m sure she would want to know that we have the same birthday.

How closely are you connected to a famous person, and who is that person?

I don’t know anyone famous, but I did get to sit on the floor of the Oval Office and hear President Clinton give his Saturday morning radio address one time!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don’t be afraid to be afraid because, “Anxiety is a glimpse of your own daring”-- a quote I once heard and I try to remember!

Duh? I can always buy new clothes!

What would you be doing if you weren’t doing your current job?

Food Critic for sure!

In a bank heist, what role would you play?

Probably the one putting out the press release when it was all over assuming I lived through it!
