 5 Things She Can’t Live Without

Cell phone: It’s my lifeline to family, friends, work, clients, news, photos, shopping, and travel—pretty much everything.

Travel: I love to explore new places and visit old favorites. On the list for post-pandemic: Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Chocolate: Let the record reflect that chocolate should be an essential part of one’s diet.

Connection to my family, friends, and students: My relationships with these people are the most important part of my life.

Purpose: Each day we make choices that shape the future, whether we realize it or not. My goal is to choose with purpose to create the future I want for myself and others.
