Take Joan from Mad Men - minus the ginge - and add the professional ambition of CJ from the West Wing, the mouth of a sailor, the heart of a lion, and a LOT more freckles, and you've got me in a nutshell. Middle of three sisters, half Scots-Irish/half Jew, born and raised in Westchester County, New York. I work at a lobbying firm in Raleigh - and I love my job. I also love dogs. And sperry top siders.
