Here are a few other tidbits:
1. I grew up in Florida and through school/work have made my way up the Eastern seaboard. I'm now a New Yorker but hold fiercely onto my small town roots.
2. My best friends are my dogs Felix and Athena. They enrich my life beyond words. Obviously, we're not going to be a match if you aren't into dogs.
3. One of my goals is to visit all 50 states before I'm 40. I'm 30 states into it so I have a lot of work ahead of me in the next few years!
