What’s the current background on your phone? A picture of me juggling a coconut like a soccer ball on the beach in Puerto Rico…combining so many things that I love.

Who was your favorite teacher? Mrs. T in 1st grade. I came in as a non-reader and came out at grade level — she fixed my foundation!

What’s your favorite place to travel? Mount Desert Island, Maine. Mountains, lakes, and the ocean. You can’t ask for anything more.
