When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?

The pyramids really were my 10 year old self’s Roman Empire. Being an archaeologist was the dream, and being the one to not only make discoveries on dig sites but also reveal the stories behind the items and structures found was my go-to career path for years.

A social cause you care deeply about and why?

Women’s access to healthcare, mental health, social and community support, building toward a positive climate and environment. These are all movements and causes that are working towards healthier people and healthier communities, and for me supporting them is how I feel I’m contributing to a better future.

If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?

Restoring paintings! Watching the process of what goes into bringing hundred-years-old portraits back to life is my version of ASMR.

You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?

During my first trip to New York, I saw Nora Ephron’s play Love Loss and What I Wore and the whole experience is tied to me not only falling in love with New York, but also what made me decide to live there. I’d love to just sit and compare our New York experiences then and now, and ask her how she navigated her career and life.

Stevie Nicks just to learn about Fleetwood Mac lore, I mean Silver Springs, the entirety of Rumors, everything about the band and her solo career is fascinating. Lore aside, Stevie has been the soundtrack to every girls night and so many life moments for me that she’s another person I would be happy to just sit and listen to on anything and everything.

And then this would bring me to four but they come as a pair, and I’d have to say my nieces! Every time I see them it’s like they’ve grown into the next version of themselves. It’s beautiful and exciting and awesome to witness, but bittersweet because there really isn’t enough time to marvel at how they’re becoming their own selves. Any chance to sit and talk with them is priceless. (BRB, booking flights to them now!)

In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)

Constantly checking IMDb during movies!
