What are some of your best memories you have of
growing up?
One of my favorite memories was going fishing with my dad;
it was a special time we shared together. We continued to go
fishing even when I got older. I also loved cooking with my mother; we had such a good time.

Do you have children or pets?
No children, but I have some chickens! When I was growing up we always had dogs, cats and various other pets including a skunk.

Do you have an iPad or iPhone?
I have an iPad, which I reluctantly gave into because I travel
so much.

What are your favorite things to do to relax?
I love to surf, garden, hike, and fish. I also enjoy wandering around the farmers’ market.

Do you have a favorite author?
One of my favorite authors is the late Edward Abbey, a noted
author and essayist known for his advocacy of environmental
issues. His non-fiction book “Desert Solitaire” was very special to me when I read it.

Do you have a favorite musician or type of music that you enjoy listening to?
I enjoy a range of music from classical to music of today. A parti­cular favorite is Marin Saxton, who has an amazing voice.

What do you like to watch on TV if anything?
I enjoy watching the BBC news; the Iron Chef and Tony Bourdain’s shows.

Do you prefer to be out of the spotlight and why?
I prefer to be out of the spotlight, particularly where I live. It’s
necessary though, when it comes to marketing Newman’s Own Organics products, as well as talking about the issues that are
important to me.

Do you have siblings?
Yes, two younger sisters and two older half-sisters.

Did you realize as a child, that you’re parents were
famous?
Yes, people treated us differently when we were out with our
parents. Also we could tell which children knew we had famous parents, because their parents would obviously tell them. It was very difficult to tell who were your real friends.

How did you manage to stay so grounded with famous
parents?
Lots of practice! Also our parents tried to give us as normal a life as possible.

Your parent’s had a real love of cooking; did they pass
that along to you?
Definitely. Both dad and mom are excellent cooks in their own right and I learned a good deal from them both. Dad used to take me to the seasonal farm stands near our home in CT. I’m often the designated cook at holiday dinners.

What’s the best advice you have for someone who wants to live an organic lifestyle?
Please be mindful in life of your choices and the implications they have environmentally and on others.

What is your wish for the coming year?
Find a balance between work and daily life.

What projects are you currently working on?
Exploring possible new products. I also sit on three foundation boards: AllergyKids, Eco-Trust, and Wholesome Waves and have commitments to them.
