I live in Yankee country but am a proud member of Red Sox nation. I came to NJ for school and never went back. I grew up on the beach and miss it a lot so during the summers I try to spend as much time at the beach as possible. Feet in the sand, book in hand and the smell of coppertone…that’s my happy place.I have two dogs, Milo and the Bean; they’re famous among the 5 year olds in my town. My dogs are known by reputation alone. Little kids never seen before have approached me and said, “Is this Milo and the Bean?!” My dogs are the Taylor Swift of the neighborhood.I come from a family of travelers and I think it’s genetic. I’ve lived in Australia, spent a month in Ireland and needless to say, travel is still high on my list – even if it’s just to go back to Boston to visit my parents. I’ve visited Italy, France, Portugal and others that I’m forgetting. I brought 75 girls to Greece a couple of years ago; I’d love to go back and spend more time there...without the teenagers. I’d love to visit Costa Rica, Kenya and Seattle (I hear it’s nice there) among others.
