“Life is about saying ‘yes’ to new experiences. To practice this philosophy, there are some years when I try one new activity each week for the entire year. Meeting and marrying my husband, visiting new and historic architecture while traveling to conferences, and accepting the AIA St. Paul President-elect position have all been possible because I was brave enough to say ‘yes.’ It’s wonderful how one simple word can change everything.”
