CITY TRAFFIC ENGINEER
WEST PALM BEACH
Vision for WPB
We are fast preparing the city’s infrastructure to support technological and behavioral advances in how we move and connect. New technology is going to change the daily experience in very exciting ways, and we’re all over it. I look forward to instagrammable streets!
Most admired icon
Diane Von Furstenberg, for many reasons. But that wrap dress? It’s the ultimate in efficient clothing. Easy to dress up or down, and goes from day to night beautifully. I love fashion. I flunked out as an art history major and became an engineer.
Source of unbridled joy
My husband, Khang, and 5-year-old son, Parker. I dress the little guy in a bow tie every morning, wiring him each day in so many ways to develop into a perfect little gentleman.
Biggest professional influence
Janette Sadik Khan, Commissioner of NYC’s Dept. of Transportation and author of Street Fight. She introduced the now-famous Times Square pedestrian plaza. Streets are our biggest city asset, hidden in plain sight.
I garden. To extremes, I admit. My husband finally had to shut it down, because it was getting out of hand. I can obsess over my urns of delicate tomatoes for months. And don’t get me started on my fruit trees. Nature is amazing.
Um, shoes? At one point, I had enough to go for three months and never repeat. From Jimmy Choo to Vans and Adidas Yeezy, I admit it’s a real problem.
Yin yoga, at both Fitness Hub in the 300 block and at the Mandel Public Library. I’m being good by adding my foodie-ness second to yoga. Life is too short to eat the same thing every day. I never miss Pairings in May and the SOBE Wine & Food Festival!
