“Underpromise; overdeliver” – Tom Peters
If you weren’t in advertising, what would you be doing?
Probably an attorney or a jury consultant.
Who Inspires you?
What is the oddest job you ever worked?
Has to be either artistic roller skating professional or working in a book bindery sewing old books together by hand. I put myself through college with those jobs!
What is your most favorite location you have ever visited and why?
Santorini, Greece – most beautiful place on earth and amazing memories vacationing with my family there. We climbed to the top of the Nea Kameni volcano and swam in the Mediterranean.
What are three things you cannot live without?
My family, Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and my iPhone.
Did you play any sports in the past, and if yes, which ones?
As a kid, I was a nationally-ranked artistic roller skater (see above photo). That was my main sport growing up. Currently, I teach Zumba and play golf. Of course, my mother would have argued that none of those are actually “sports” – she believed that to qualify as a sport there must be an offense and a defense. I used to love hearing her argue with my husband that she would only consider golf as a sport if there were other golfers chasing you with clubs while you were trying to tee off!
