» Personal hero: Bette Midler. She’s a mature woman, and she’s never really not acted her age. She’s a spectacular performer who connects individuals, and she has a wicked sense of humor—yet takes life as it comes at her and maintains that sense of humor.

» One thing she knows for sure: The sun will come up tomorrow. No matter how lousy things are, there’s always a tomorrow.

» Very own vici: I received an award from the Tri-State College Library Cooperative. I won their first service award in 2007.

» Zen destination: My garden, even though it’s a lot of work. I love getting my hands dirty and taking all of my negative energy out on weeds and whacking bushes.

» If she had an extra hour each day, she would: Garden.

» Pet peeve: People who drive in the wrong lane to make a turn, and then don’t use their turn signals.

» Life view: chance or fate? I’m definitely a chance person. I think things happen, and you have to cope with it.

» Most marked characteristic: I’d like to believe it’s my sense of humor.

» Qualities she admires most in others: Honesty and gentleness.

» Mantra: “Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.” Sometimes it’s people in support roles who are just as important.
