I absolutely love skiing, sailing, & scuba diving. Also, I’m all about the arts and photography. Handcrafted cocktails with freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice? Yes, please. There’s nothing more heavenly than eating the perfect lobster roll. Shoe shopping is a given, and chances are I’m doing it right now. A romantic at heart, I truly believe in the power of positive thinking & the law of attraction within the universe. Oh…and Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip ice cream helps, too, along with fluffy cotton candy, homemade cupcakes with buttercream frosting, and super chilled, whole, chocolate milk. I’m the cool aunt to 5 spectacular nieces and nephews. My Great Pyrenees/Aussie Shepard/Border Collie mix makes me laugh and smile always. I was raised in St. Louis, then Vail and Denver were home base. My family now resides in Madison, WI and Manhattan.
