What are some ways you’ve found to balance your work and personal life?
This question always makes me laugh, because historically, life and work have coexisted as one and the same. The reality is.. leisure is a very modern concept. I find, as a person who is self-employed, managing several businesses and collaborating with my husband, that my personal life and work life are intrinsically tied and one gives life to the other, and vice versa. I assume that this works for us because our children are grown and have lives of their own. As a young family, boundaries and “balance” are definitely more important to make sure you’re allocating proper time to all important things; but for me, I love my work – I love working with my husband and so that’s what we do in our common life. It is what makes life so fun.

What has been a pivotal decision you’ve made that has contributed to your success?
Opening Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards with my husband Dean, was probably the most pivotal and riskiest decision I’ve made. We had everything on the line. With my husband’s years of luxury hotel experience and my wedding industry expertise we formulated a design for a truly sublime location to wed. The happiest moment of my career was when PH was named “Top 50 Most Romantic Venues” in the US by Brides Magazine. I literally did the chicken dance… a lot.
