I was born…

in Des Moines into a wonderful family and grew up in the northern boundary waters of Minnesota.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is its incredible beauty and rich history.

I’m listening to…

Pandora, French Café.

My family…

is my heart, and my close friends are included.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Elizabeth the II, Winston Churchill, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Golda Meir, Hilary Clinton, Sting and Bono.

One thing I cannot live without…

freedom and independence.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a cowgirl, a dancer, Mother Superior, a blues singer, Boss Lady (Equay Ogema in Chippewa).

I’m inspired by…

intelligent people.

The one person who motivates me is…

Gloria Steinem. She is a powerful motivator and linguistically brilliant. Also, Gerda Weissmann Klein for her kindness and tolerance toward humanity.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to eliminate its poverty, hunger, violence and war; I would have peace on earth.

The perfect day would be…

sailing with my sons.

My first job was…

in a small bookstore. I loved it!

My favorite escape…

traveling the world.

My life…

is very busy but wonderful.

I’m currently working on…

our 2014 Arizona YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix Tribute to Leadership Gala where our organization honors outstanding community leaders for their significant contributions to our community.  It is my favorite event of the year!

Always…

be honest.

Never…

be unkind.

Favorite Quote “…

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have succeeded.”   Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Biggest Dream…

a little house in France and world peace.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

prejudice and condescension.
