Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't sweat the small stuff!" I'm also a fan of: "Do crazy things with your hair while you still have hair to do it with."

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is feeling healthy, loved, inspired, free and with a plane ticket to an exotic locale in my hand! Throw in side-splitting laughter, friends and family, key lime pie, a 99.9 percent discount at Chanel and a sidewalk cafe in Paris and I may never leave.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. If Martha Stewart could take a long vacation and I could move into her perfect farmhouse in Bedford, NY (complete with miniature horses and donkeys!) that would be great.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Just one? Well, I hate talking things out, I'm stubborn and I can be way too competitive.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Olympic sprinter
