FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?
The Northcote Road-there is a wonderful choice of local restaurants and boutiques. Now that the road is pedestrianised on the weekends, it feels like a mini festival.
The Hawaiian practice of Ho’opononpono. There are few things that cannot be solved by saying “I love you”, “Thank you”, “I’m sorry”, and “I forgive you.”
CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Toddler proofing my house. I was hoping instilling a knowledge of household danger would allow us to avoid the ugly foam edging and baby gates. Despite being aware of the danger as she imitates me shaking her pointer finger and acknowledging “no, no no”, Bella then proceeds to laugh and do it anyway!
WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?
My mom. As a kid, she dreamt of being a teacher and worked multiple jobs to pay for her education. She retired from teaching when my brother and I were adolescents, but returned at age 58 adjusting to new teaching approaches and technology with courses at Columbia University. She is a living example that you are never too old to reinvent yourself or continue living your dream.
