Memorable travel moment: A day-hike in the Pyrenees where we reached the Cirque du Gavarnie and felt the cool mist spray from one of Europe’s largest waterfalls. I was with my parents, my children, my husband and our closest friends. This was the highlight of my 40th birthday.

Family: My immediate family and our dog keep me happy, remind me to slow down, and they understand me best. My grandmother, now in her nineties, continues to inspire me with activism and kindness to others. Our former exchange student from Spain and his family are influential in our global perspective.
