• I was obsessing over diets as a teenager; if anyone told me that I would cook for a living, I would have laughed at them.
  • I either go all the way or not at all; I like the extreme, yet I can be quite flexible.
  • I am a perfectionist capable of hard work; I do not accept half-measures.
  • I have always tried to surround myself with positive people and I adore those who can remain modest and kind in spite of being successful.
  • I felt the most appreciated in my life when my older son said: Mom, you are always there for us!
