What’s on your bucket list? Bhutan is tops. New Zealand and I are destined to be good friends someday, with visits to Bali and Australia as part of the journey. When it comes to travel, I could go on … and on …

What words would you use to describe yourself? Happy. Intense. Word nerd. Productive. Compassionate. Dedicated. Nonstop. Grateful.

Favorite playlist? Since the day it was released, I’ve listened to nothing but Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording). I’ve seen the show 16 times (including Broadway, Chicago and London’s West End) and got to meet the genius behind the phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda (I’ll happily show you the pic!). No matter your musical preferences, Hamilton is a great piece of art!
