Tell us about what you're doing with your life.
I am currently managing a Four Seasons Hotel and trying to keep up with my daughter, and if any free time comes up—going SAILING!

What was your favorite class at Cornell, or the one you found the most useful?

I don't remember the class name, but it was with Prof. Chase during my senior year in which our final was writing a vision statement of our future and I love going back and reading to see how close I have come.

What is your favorite memory of your time at Cornell?

Winning Nationals for big boat sailing and going to France to represent our university and our country against 19 other teams.

An amalgamation of memories including HEC nights, my Bryant Av girls, the Theta house, and some wonderful road trips involving flying malomars.

How has your time at Cornell influenced you since you graduated?
All the friendships I made directly and indirectly through my years at Cornell.

Running into a sorority sister (Kuda Huraa) in a cocktail reception in the Maldives.
