What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever visited?

Grace Bay Beach, Turks and Caicos. The white sand and pure blue water reflecting against an unforgettable sunset is heaven on earth.

What’s the one book you’d take to a desert island?

“Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy. It’s the first “grown-up” book I read when I was in high school, and I still love it. It’s a drama that transports you to another place and time, immersing you so deeply in the lives of all the characters that you completely forget about your own time and place. (Also, it is 800 pages, which should keep me occupied until “Gilligan” gets the ship up and running.)

What’s the best piece of advice you’d give someone?

We are all on this journey together (i.e., co-workers, family and friends). If we keep the needs of others top of mind, we can propel everyone forward.
