If you could learn any instrument what would you play?

The Piano

A Caribbean cruise through the Panama Canal

If you had to sell everything you own, and could only keep one thing, what would you keep and why?

Photo albums – for the memories.

What is your theme song, and why?

Survivor, (by Destiny’s Child?) – I’ve been through a lot and still keep going.

What’s your favorite book of all time?

I read a variety of books, so I don’t have a favorite. I always say I can’t pass up shoe stores or bookstores.

What movie, no matter how many times you’ve seen it, do you have to watch every time it’s on?

Rob Roy, Dirty Dancing, and any romantic comedy.

How honest are you?

I don’t sugar coat, if you ask a question I figure you want an honest answer. I tell people they have to be careful what they ask me, I’m an open books and I may not give the answer they’r expecting.

What super power would you like to have?

Invisibility. I’d love to be a fly on the wall, even just to listen and understand people better.

What’s your favorite dessert?

Creme Brulee – I make a Maple Creme Brulee that’s to die for! I also make a delicious homemade White Chocolate Pot de Creme. When I go out to dinner I always look on the menu for something I don’t already know how to cook – it gets difficult when you own 150 cookbooks.

Break: no. Bend: yes.

Pepsi or Coke?

Pepsi

Deaf – I have fears of being blind, as I can only see out of one eye.

Lynn at the front desk way back in 2005

What super power would you like to have?

What’s your favorite song of all time?

Anything Billy Joel, followed closely by Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me.”

What’s your favorite dessert?

Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

Tell me about something that was difficult, but made you a better person?

Accepting this position as the National Sales Manager of Sabre Yachts.

If you could send a message back through time your younger self what would you say?

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

If you could do one thing differently in your life what would it be?

I would join every group I could in school, just to see if I liked it. I would swing for the home run and not care if anybody was watching. I was not outgoing and I would change that.

Name one thing that always makes you smile, no matter what:

Belly laughs from a baby

Who at this company has done something that impresses you? What was it?

It’s not one person but the collective that impresses me. As a group we do amazing things.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

My mothers house on Christmas Eve with my entire family there. We are noisy and busy and fun. I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

What’s your favorite book and why?

The Bible. I learn something new every time I read it.

What would you most like to learn?

Sign language, but I would need someone to learn it with me so we could talk.

Tell me about one real life person who is your hero:

Jesus Christ.

I would build a YMCA in Presque Isle, ME. I have friends there and they don’t have an affordable place to work out.

What are you most proud of?

My family, my kids – they are amazing people.

Do you have any hobbies?

I’m waiting for summer so I can start Paddle Boarding.

Who is the smartest person you know?

What is your least favorite thing about humanity?

We forget too quickly the lessons we’ve learned.

If you could talk to one person who has passed away who would you talk to and what would you say?

My father’s mother. We would walk around her yard and she would teach me about her plants. She tried to do this when I was young but I did not appreciate it at the time. I didn’t understand that she would not always be there.

If you could change history, what would you change and why?

My great grandfather is Native American. I would change how we handled settling this country

Tell me something that no one would ever guess about you?

I’m really a shy person.
