Favorite childhood game: Marbles - I was practically professional from 3rd to 6th grade.
Hometown: Turner, ME
Theme song: Superwoman, Alicia Keyes
Offbeat hobbies: Macrobiotics Cooking
Surprising talent: I love designing theater make-up for shows. This came in very handy on a Gorton's Seafood television shoot...most of the crew got seasick and I had to fill in for make up as we were rocking and rolling.
Nastiest injury: All my injuries are nasty. If it is not bleeding or broken, it's not an injury.
Have you ever Googled yourself? Yes and better yet, I follow a British Laura Davis on Twitter. I think of her as my alter ego.
Most passionate cause: Maine Cancer Foundation
Proudest moment: Raising my kids and teaching them to be caring members of the human race.
If you could invite any celebrity, living or dead, over for beers who would it be? First of all, I hate beer. So, it would have to be Bono for Margaritas. Or the Dalai Lama for tea.
What gets you belly laughing? When animals act like little humans. Or when little humans act like animals. It's a toss-up.
Dream travel destination: Any place that has "Isle" in its name. Even if there was a place called Amityville Isle, I'd probably check it out.
Biggest lesson learned: To live in the moment
