First job?

Teaching flute. I played throughout high school and college, even majoring in flute performance in college for a brief period of time. I taught lessons from middle school until many years after graduating from college.

Favorite family tradition?

My husband and I decorate our kids’ rooms after they go to sleep on the night before their birthday every year. They wake up to a web of streamers, balloons covering their floor, and gifts wrapped and ready for celebration. It’s the only night of the year we don’t have to remind them that it’s bedtime!

Ways to unwind?

My husband and I love to ski – especially with our children. We’ve built many great family memories skiing together whenever and wherever possible. When I can’t ski, I practice martial arts to unwind and get exercise – including Muay Thai kickboxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and Kali-Escrima.

Missed opportunity?

To bungee jump where it was first offered commercially when visiting New Zealand to ski. I’ve regretted not taking advantage of the opportunity ever since. I’ll have to return so I can cross it off of my bucket list (if I can build up the nerve).

Important quotes?

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

And a dear friend lived by the quote: “Always stand up for what’s right – even if you’re standing alone.” I try to remember the importance of both of these quotes as I interact with others.
