Where have you gotten lost on purpose?

Istanbul. Truthfully, we were actually lost, but it was delightful and we were never far from a kebab.

What is your most unshakable vice?

When given the choice of salad or fries on the side, I have never once been able to say “salad”.

What is your proudest moment?

I was on a jury and persuaded the final dissenter over to my side with a bullet-pointed argument I had (nerdily) written out over the weekend. Should I have said childbirth?

What advice would you give your twenty-year-old self?

Step away from the tanning bed. Your Irish skin is not naturally that color.

What’s your most-used emoji?

The church with the heart in it. I live in a renovated church so it’s how my husband and I tell each other we’re home or want to be home. Probably not its intended use.

Where would you take a month-long road trip?

The American South to Southwest. It’s all about the sauces. 

How do you take your coffee?

A lot of cream and a little sugar. I start with it extra-strong and basically turn it into a caffeinated dessert.
