What is the best advice you ever received?
Once in a wonderful dream, I was anxious about auditioning for a musical, and a kind, grandfatherly being took me in his arms and said, “Just sing!” That advice works for lots of situations!

NPR on the radio. House of Cards coming soon to Netflix.

Sudoku and crossword puzzles, making hand-made gifts, gazing at photos of our baby granddaughter.

What drew you to work at the Cuyahoga Land Bank?
I bumped into Bob Rink (Cuyahoga Land Bank Board Secretary) who told me the Land Bank was hiring. I couldn’t think of a better place to work, or a more perfect job for me!
