Q. What is your motto or maxim?

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. With my family on the beach in Cahuita (Costa Rica), listening to howler monkeys after just having snorkled. Add some cold drinks and patacones (freshly-made plantain chips).
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Flexibility. And as boring as it may sound, self-discipline and practicality (both gifts from my father).
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Lifetime fear: tornadoes. Adult fear: losing my children.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. Here in Spain, it is undoubtedly my foreignness, my American accent, my green eyes. And in the States? I imagine I blend in pretty well.
