What do you love doing outside of work?
I find joy and peace in, and on, the water. I lived in Saudi Arabia for a number of years as a child. It’s scorching hot there, and swimming was one of the few activities one could do to cool off. So, I swam competitively and did a lot of scuba diving. I’ve retained that love of water my entire life and recently fell in love with sailing. It is delightful and liberating to harness the wind to get from point A to point B, without harming the environment, taking in the gorgeous vistas in our world, and gaining new skills.
I love to travel, and am passionate about learning new languages, dances, and board games specific to the local culture and region. The games, dance steps, and memories become the souvenirs that I bring home with me.
I also cherish talking to my three adult children and planning a rendez-vous with them wherever I may be in the world.
