Provenance: I was born in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, the fourth of five children. I went to college in Boston. I lived in London and Miami, and then came back to Boston.
Boston bona fide: I ran the Boston Marathon in 2007 and couldn’t get a pedicure for three weeks after because of pain and damage. I don’t understand marathon runners, but I am contemplating a run this year with my older sister.
Hobbies: I love the beach. I travel quite a bit. I like tennis, but I don’t play much anymore. And sleeping. Sleeping is my favorite activity, but I rarely get to do it.
Guilty pleasures: I lie to people and tell them I’m fluent in Spanish to impress them, but then I get caught. I love to cook. And I love buying and arranging flowers. I used to sneak into the Flower Exchange every weekend by saying I was a florist. I have issues.
