What was your first job?

Babysitting at 11 years old for a family with 6 children.

If you could pick your nickname, what would it be?

Murph from my maiden name Murphy. Everyone used to call me Murph rather than my first name. It is strange to lose the name I had been called for close to 2 decades when I married and I miss it.

What is your favorite book that you can read over and over again?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I read it every year right after my birthday.
