Book on her night stand: I’m reading A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by David Eggers. We all have people in our family dealing with illness; it’s something I can relate to.

iPod tunes on repeat: Tony Bennett duets. Other than that, I’ve been in an ’80s mood, listening to R.E.M., U2, Talking Heads—lively stuff that keeps you going when you’re busy.

Restaurant of the hour: That new place in Paoli—the Big Easy Saloon. It’s casual, but they have great food. And it’s a fun place.

Personal hero: I admire people who have integrity and strength, and who are always looking to give back to the community. I don’t think I can choose one person; you run into people everyday.

One thing she knows for sure: You reap what you sow. Do your best to treat people well, contribute, and all that will come back to you.

Very own vici: My kids: Kyle, Max and Tess. How can it be about anything else? Raising them well is what it’s all about. That’s why I like volunteering; I want to set an example for them.

Zen destination: It always comes down to Paris.

If she had an extra hour each day, she would: Read more. That’s one of the reasons I stay in my book club—to make sure I still read.

Pet peeve: Lateness.

Life view: chance or fate? It kind of goes back to, “You reap what you sow.” There’s a larger plan.

Defining trait: I’m opinionated.

Quality she most admires in others: I like people who are forthright. I don’t like people with hidden agendas or ulterior motives. I like people who are open—what you see is what you get.

Mantra: It is what it is. You’ve got to take the bull by the horns and move on.
