  3. Can you talk about a favorite memory here? Proudest moment?
    1. I recently received a compliment out in public from a staff member at NH Fish and Game about how all of our work (permits and permitting applications) are of such high quality. It really made me proud.
  4. What is your favorite pastimes outside the office?
    1. Playing with my kids and husband, hiking, reading and naps. Naps are essential at my house on Sunday afternoons [chuckles], they are like religion.

    1. Sunblock especially, then a book and some water!

    1. I worked for the Ripley Aquarium for 9 months and I was responsible for feeding the sharks. Through this experience I can now take sharks’ blood pressure. I also had the opportunity to go to the pier where a lot of people catch hammerhead sharks and collect them for the tanks at the aquarium.
  7. Do you have a motto or personal mantra?
    1. Does “stop that” count?! [laughs, then responds with] of the Golden Rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Oh and if you are my children then it is “If you are going to act annoying don’t be surprised when people get annoyed!”

    1. Princess Kate… I am fascinated by the travel, possibly the clothes, the beautiful places and everything she gets to experience.
  10. If you won the lottery today, what would be the first thing you would buy?
    1. A house on the beach. We have lived several places so we would need to have one in multiple places – the Maine, Florida and South Carolina coasts. That would be perfect to wake up and look out the window and see the ocean!
