What do you love most about Your City?
I have lived in NYC since 1995 (with a 3 year hiatus in California). From the time I first moved here, NYC has felt like home in a way no other place has felt like home. I love the vibe of the city – the people, the energy, the diversity – and I love the fact that everyone can be themselves here. I knew I wanted my kids to be raised here.
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
Vanilla French toast at Jane.
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Answering emails and reading the New York Times and news from around the world that relates to women’s rights.
10:00 AM – Working – often on a conference call with our offices in London, Nairobi and Beirut.
12:00 PM – Favorite Lunch spot/meal?
Over the week, I seldom have time to go out for lunch, but over the weekend I enjoy taking my boys to Sripapai or Chao Thai in Queens, New York – they love good Thai food!
7:00 PM – Making dinner (or ordering dinner) for my boys.
11:00 PM – Watching a favorite show. Right now it’s Patriot Act with Hassan Minaj (and waiting for the new season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel). I generally feel that comedy is a good way to end the day.
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
I drink coffee and diet coke, maybe 2-3 combined.
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
The FreshDirect app. I don’t use Instagram, but don’t tell anyone!
What should everyone try at least once?
Disrupting the status quo to move the dial on an issue you care about, the risk is worth it.
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
I don’t enjoy getting lost at all – but I can spend hours walking on the beach!
