I’d describe my life as…
Family-driven. We’re an active and fun group that enjoys sharing each other’s company.


My home…
Has been designed around our sons’ lives for the last 22 years. I would like to see it grow up and become more sophisticated.


I wish I knew how to…
Do middle-aged make-up! I don’t think I’ve changed my make-up habits since high school.


My son Frank says that I...
Always know what to say and when to say it―even if it’s just through cooking.


The greatest challenge I’m facing right now is…
Increasing my work productivity. My profession requires huge self-discipline and organization, and I struggle with that.


My fashion sense…

Has slipped. Too many years of being a stay-at-home mom has robbed me of my instincts.


My hero is…
Indiana Jones. He rocks.


One thing that’s currently on my to-do list―but might not get done―is…
Laundry: my least favorite household chore.


One thing that’s on my to-do-one-day list is…
Learn to use technology to simplify and organize my life.
