I grew up in a blended, ruthlessly funny, goofy as all get out family. It is one of the greatest gifts I have been given and has made me appreciate the importance of connection. I wouldn’t be who I am without them. If the Griswolds and Von Trapp family intermarried? Well, that is my family.
I deeply believe in the beauty of family life as it is. We are not J Crew models or TV stars. We are real human beings with dog fur on our clothes and dirt on our shoes.
(So let the kids run wild. I'll find your magic. I promise. )
I am a lover of improvisation. Truly. I actually drive an hour to take an improvisational theater class each week. This continues to teach me to be present and in the moment; to trust myself and my fellow scene partners. The biggest lesson this class has taught me is to say “Yes” to whatever is being offered, RIGHT AT THAT MOMENT.
My super power is singing and dancing while cooking dinner. Spatulas make great microphones.
I can parallel park like a boss, which is kind of ironic because I’m pretty klutzy.
My husband is the funniest person I know.
