Q & A with Nicollette
What is the top item on your bucket list?
To retire to Puerto Vallarta!
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
The power to understand what people really mean and feel when they speak… so I guess the power to read minds!
What is your favorite food?
Cheese. Especially a good blue cheese or grilled feta. I could eat cheese every day for every meal!
What is your favorite book? Why?
I enjoy a variety of books and movies so its hard to pick one. I have ready everything by Kurt Vonnegut so any of his books would be a decent choice. I love his books because he had an unique sense of humor and an almost psychic knowledge of the future. His books aren’t just entertaining, they are philosophical.
What do you like most about serving on CFSA’s Board of Trustees?
The opportunity to support the great work that CFSA and all its donors do. Giving a voice to other ways of thinking, particularly from a younger less conservative mind set. Serving my community.
