  • I have a lot in common with President Obama – He grew up in Hawaii, I’ve been to Hawaii. His oldest daughter is named Malia, My middle name is Malia. He went to Harvard, I married someone who went to Harvard, in fact they even played basketball together (shout out Mr. President from Thomas Stewart). And don’t get me started on what I have in common with Oprah. I’m just saying.

  • My most powerful experience: Enduring over thirty hours of labor (half of which were beyond excruciating) in the natural home births of both my children (I must say not a good time to give up doing drugs, not that I ever did drugs.)
  • My second most powerful experience was when I skydived a few years ago. Truly an amazing experience and I highly recommend you try it if you don’t mind signing that “I will not sue you if I die” waiver, which is kind of funny because I do believe dead people can’t sue.
  • I love traveling, trying new things, reading, writing, researching any thing that piques my interest, and sharing great ideas and spiritual truths. I love being pampered at the spa, eating great food, and hanging out with really smart and passionate people. There’s nothing better than going to a great restaurant in one of my favorite cities (New York, Montreal, San Francisco, Oakland, DC …) and enjoying amazing food and great conversation with my really cool and down-to-earth peeps. Except for the smiles, laughter, hugs + kisses, and love of my children. Now, that’s the absolute best!

  • New Favorite Quote: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
