Who or what is your sidekick? My 10-year-old daughter, Kristin, and my two rescue cats, Mitzi and Wolfie
What career would you choose in an alternate reality? Horse trainer or ballerina. I grew up with horses and often dreamed of being a jockey, but it’s a dangerous sport. I enjoy the camaraderie between animals and humans that’s involved with training. Also, I studied ballet for several years and made the mistake of quitting after my teacher retired. I truly wish I would have continued, although the discipline involved might have proved too hard to handle.
