Tell us about your family.
I have a wonderful ever-curios husband, Michael, who has a PhD in A.I., my two sons, Amin (who is about to get married) and Joel (who is just starting to think it would be nice to have a serious relationship.) I have a sassy cat named Sadie, and outdoor frog, who ribbits in the morning and evenings. My mother, who lives in Oregon, and three brothers who are scattered around the U.S. and are a constant source of inspiration and amusement.
What’s your favorite food to cook/bake/grill?
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave you?
If everyone would just keep their own “doorsteps” clean, what a beautiful world this would be – in other words, keeping my life “clean” is work enough, mind my own business, and encourage others to do the same.
What’s your Favorite Newcastle Business?
Its a toss up between Tapatio’s or B&E Meat
What’s your Favorite book?
Napoleon Hill’s, “Think and Grow Rich”, but really, books that inspire, inform, and promote beauty, love, connection, and healing.
