Retrieved from

Age: 46
Hometown: Bernardsville, N.J.
Current residence: Lebanon Township, N.J.
Occupation: Actuary
Hobbies: Adventure travel, any kind of puzzle, and cheering on my kids at their sports and activities.
Pet peeves: When someone doesn't hold a fork correctly and eats like a caveman.
Three words to describe you: Mushy, happy, and efficient.
What's your personal claim to fame? I've traveled through all seven continents! I'm proud of having graduated from Penn (as a math major!) and MIT. And mostly, I'm really proud of the three incredible humans that my husband and I have raised.
Who or what is your inspiration in life? My husband and my children - they are just amazing in every way. Anyone who is afraid but goes for it anyway. Women in math.
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A photo of my family since they'd get me through the super tough days, a blanket because I hate being cold, and tweezers.
Survivor contestant you're most like: Probably Tai Trang. He falls in love with everyone but gets cut-throat when he needs to. Or Spencer Bledsoe, who never gives up or stops looking for cracks.
What's your reason for being on Survivor: The adventure! But it's an adventure with a goal, and I am a super competitive, Type A overachiever. I will win!
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I am smart, lovable, and driven, and people like to help me, a combination that has led to great success. I get along with everyone, work hard, and always think "I can do it!"[3]
