Describe a perfect morning.
Reading the Star Tribune newsletter and drinking coffee while having a cooking show on in the background. And of course I’m still in my pajamas.
What is the craziest thing you’ve experienced, good or bad?
My best friend and I have stayed at haunted houses and we both believe in ghosts. A few summers ago we stayed at an old colonial on the Iowa/Missouri border as we knew there were going to be ghost hunters staying there for a TV show. It was a very interesting evening.
How do you handle long lines?
I don’t. I usually walk out and come back. Especially during the holidays.
What is your definition of an amazing client relationship?
One that has mutual respect and understands that we each have our own expertise and they hired us for that expertise. Beyond that, I enjoy working with clients who are kind and funny.
Must-see destination before you’re 100?
Best recipe/meal/restaurant you’ve tried lately?
I recently made Barbequed Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps by Rachel Ray and they were to die for!
