About Me


Good cook -- always in motion. A fun person who loves spontaneity and music, plays well with others (especially the under five set). Internet news junkie who has a wealth of bizarre facts at her fingertips. Kind & always willing to help other people out.


I love really beautiful and well-designed things, which can really be found everywhere if you take the time to look. I spend a lot of time with my two children and really love the chance to re-experience so many things as if for the first time with them. In the summer I spend as much time as possible outdoors, gardening, swimming, hiking and biking. In less compelling weather, I read -- am a college professor in women's/gender studies and like to think outside the box.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Wow -- hard question. Definitely the births of my children - amazing experience each time, and they continue to amaze me at every new milestone. I really am most moved when I witness people attempting new and difficult things, whether they succeed or fail at them -- and it inspires me to do the same (for example running a 10-mile race for the first time ever at 43).
