» Role models:  I’m hard to impress. I would say Matt Lauer, my inspiration every morning on the The Today Show

» What she likes most about herself: I’m always worrying about everyone else, although that’s not a good thing. I like being around people. I like my sharp mind. 

» What she likes most about others: Ambition, enthusiasm, passion. 

» Pet peeve: People who make excuses for things. 

» Country or rock? Neither. Oldies and ’70s music. I listen to 98.1 in the mornings while I’m on my treadmill. 

» Words to live by: If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.
