What do you love to do with your children? How old are they? And what is your greatest wish for them?
I have two children, Teagan (girl), is 7 and Beckett (boy) is 4 and a half. I love taking road trips with them and exploring “The Road Less Traveled”. My greatest wish for them is to find happiness in whatever they want to do in life. That they will understand that there will be bumps in the road, some failures along the way, but with these failures comes great success.
When and where are you the happiest?
At the lake in NH with my parents, sister and her boys. It’s such a tranquil place and to have my children be able to experience what I did as a child and build their own memories there is priceless.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
The coast of Italy. Great food, wine and a view… need I say more.
What quality do you most admire in a mother? And what woman has had the biggest impression on you?
Patience. It’s so hard to keep it together with all that is going on in the world today. A little patience goes a long way. The woman I most admire is my mother. She is such a strong woman and always knew what to say at the right time. She has been my rock.
What is your favorite book? Movie?
My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice. Favorite Movie, would have to be The Shawshank Redemption.
What personal achievement are you most proud of?
I am so proud of my children. They exhaust me, challenge me in every way and I wouldn’t change a thing. They are my pride and joy, they keep me laughing and teach me not to take life so seriously.
What do you feel is your strongest talent?
I have been very lucky to work for a family owned Real Estate boutique, Round Hill Partners. We have been deeply rooted in the community for over 20 years and coming from a corporate background I love the flexibility that comes along with a small boutique like Round Hill Partners. Our small size and private ownership allows critical decisions to be made quickly and decisively in pivotal negotiations. At this level I am able to collaborate with our brokers at ease and use new technologies to help them succeed in the market place.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love my GNO’s. There is always laughter and great conversation without any interruptions. Rejuvenates the soul.
What is your favorite time of the day and why?
Sunset. The way the light and reflections dance across the sky, the way it hits the trees, water etc. is just breathtaking.
Where is your favorite place to Party with Moms and what do you like to drink?
Any place by the water, good company, and a glass of vino is where I always love to be.
