If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be? I would be on a warm, sandy beach with a good book.

Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up? Anything that might lead me to travel and see the world. 

What are three things on your bucket list? I want to have a 50th anniversary party with my husband. I want to go to the Oscars one day, meet Tom Hanks at the after party, and become family friends. I would also like to try writing a book that gets turned into a movie…maybe starring Tom Hanks.

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working? Reading novels and spending time with my family.

What are some causes you care about? Equality for people in marginalized populations and preventing crimes against children.
