Getting to Know Your Guide

We asked our Guides some fun questions to help you get to know them a bit better.

What is your favorite job?

Part of the communications team for mapping the human genome. It had it all - winner-take-all scientific and media fame, backstory back-stabbing, late night negotiations with the Today Show. The real prize was the White House announcement, where we were part of history.

What is your favorite journey?

A canal trip through the French countryside south of Paris. For a week, it was like being in a movie on a private yacht.

Which talent would you most like to have?

I'd like to be more musical. People who can sing and play an instrument can connect easily to others.

Where would you like to live?

I'd like to rotate, have the best of all worlds. Summer in Cape Cod, Christmas in New York, winter in Santa Fe. And the rest of the time where I live now, near San Francisco.

What do you most value in your friends?

Being a good listener, without judgment.

What is your motto?

The cure for anything is salt water. Sweat, tears or the sea.

What is your favorite dessert?

The Meyer lemon parfait with hot caramel sauce at Pasta Moon in Half Moon Bay, CA. My husband and I used to share it. Now we each get our own. Couldn't go during the pandemic. Going soon.
