Best advice someone gave you?

What’s your favorite place on earth?

Sedona, Arizona. It is absolutely beautiful, and it’s the most relaxing place I have ever been.

My 1980s-permed hair. The environment was definitely harmed by my use of Aqua Net hairspray.

Food. I like it all. I really like to be creative when eating out and when cooking at home.

Who are the most important people in your life?

My husband and daughter. They bring me joy and purpose.
