What are you grateful for today?
Having the ability to make a difference for someone today – or several someones.

Tell us about one of your friends and what you love about her.
She’s amazing! I may not see or talk to her for weeks or months at a time, but when we get together, our conversation picks up exactly where we left off – you don’t connect with many people on that level.

Describe one of the best days of your life.
The day my daughter was born – I had never experienced such breath-taking joy before her birth.

What’s the best lesson you learned from your mother/grandmother?
I was a 5th generation baby, which means I had grandmas galore.  I see myself in every single one of them on many levels – they all taught different lessons from altruism to honesty, so I just picked the ones I wanted to emulate and held on tight!

We’re all unique. What is your special gift?
I can’t play the piano, or paint or dance – I have no talents, period. But, my special gift is this: I can walk into a room full of strangers and attract only the best people to my side. You know, the most compassionate, funniest, entertaining, sincere – and then, they become friends and confidants. I get a real kick of testing this gift over and over…never been disappointed.

What could women be doing to make their community a better place?
“You’ve gotta wake up every morning with a smile on your face and show the world all the love in your heart…”  Carole King

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
Make a spiritual pilgrimage to Jerusalem:  My fear is that I would be unrecognizably changed forever.

Executive Director of The Christie Foundation, Gary, had an extra question:  What could you do to live a Life of Purpose?
I would like everyone I encounter to know they are a valuable Child of God by my actions because I believe people won’t remember what I say or what I do – they will only remember how I made them feel.
