What's your favorite quote?

"Whether you think you can do a thing or you think can't do a thing, you are right." - Henry Ford

What is your favorite line from the movies?

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." - Princess Bride.

My husband and I quote that movie all the time - it is "our" movie. One of us will say the first line and the other will follow with the second one.

What’s the one thing you plan to do to change the world, even a little?

I am already working on this one. I am a troop leader for 2 girl scout troops. I will change the world by helping girls develop into confident, thoughtful, responsible and kind young women who are ready to become the leaders for tomorrow.

What was a life-altering experience?

My biggest life altering experience was having my first child. Before that I was all about climbing the ladder, getting ahead. Now I realize that there is so much more to life than work. It is better to do a job that you enjoy, that allows work/life balance and "fits" you than to go for the best title or highest salary. Having kids has also taught me to embrace who I am rather than who I think I should be. Perfect would be boring anyway, right?

What is your least favorite nickname?

"James" A girl I grew up with who tormented me in high school used to call me that. Raises the hair on my neck when someone calls me that now.
