Abigail Tarttelin
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Beauty fades but crazy lasts forever. (Thank you, Lee Anna Woodcock of Atria fame!)

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. It's really difficult to answer this question without sounding dorky! I really like a balance in life, but I like to do things intensely too, so I guess my perfect, happy life would look like: a few months of intense, sweaty, fun work, followed by a solid month or more out in nature - maybe in Maine on a lake! - paddleboarding, watching wildlife, with family and friends.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I am a very present person. The best time for everyone is now - people are freer to be who they are than ever before.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Just people. People are awesome.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Oh my gosh, I don't even want to think about this!!!
