What I like about MNW
As an organization, MNW thinks big and hires the people who are capable of making the dreams a reality.
A favorite destination
Yosemite National Park
A book (or book series)
Non-fiction: anything by Maria Montessori
Fiction: My favorite authors are Scott Turow, John Lescroart, Anne Perry, Herman Wouk, and John Grisham
A time of day
My favorite time of day is the morning. I am energized and the new day holds infinite possibilities.
My first car was a 1956 Pontiac. It was green and white with an automatic transmission, and no seat belts!
I did a theatrical performance about puns. It was a play on words.
