If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I'd be a full-time romance writer. I've already published one book.
What is the biggest risk you've taken in your career?
I worked for a large pharmaceutical corporation for a number of years and, risking the job I loved, applied for a district manager position. I didn't get the job, but turns out it was a blessing is disguise as the entire company was restructured within the next year.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
I spent four years living in New Zealand so I would definitely go back there first.
