Reveal one of your hidden talents.
I am also an artist, and half of the collaborative art duo, Caughy Jones; an art collection my husband and I create together. Caughy Jones was honored to win the Mary Hall Leach Award for Outstanding Work at this year’s Rehoboth Art League 84th Members Fine Art Exhibition.
Name something you could not live without.
Rehoboth Beach. I love the unique geography of our town and have enjoyed it as my family’s place of refuge for 15 years. It combines my two favorite things; ancient trees and, of course, the sea. I don’t know what I would do without the natural charm and calming beauty of Rehoboth Beach.
What is your favorite hobby?
My favorite way to pass the time is gardening. It gives me peace. I love working outdoors and maintaining living things that change with the seasons. I am on a never-ending quest to keep my hydrangeas purple, despite our alkaline soil! And my Magnolias bring me joy year-round.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I have a fascination with the past and wanted to be an archeologist when I was young. As a kid, I would hike in the Blue Ridge mountains with my grandpa through the ruins of the coal mining town where he was born and raised. Finding chimneys and porch steps in the wilderness intrigued me. My imagination ran wild with what once was. I would dream about discovering artifacts and piecing together the stories of those vibrant towns from the past.
If you could build anything, what would it be?
A greenhouse. I’d love a place to propagate new additions for my gardens not easily found at local nurseries and maintain a microclimate to keep all my ferns happy.
If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why would you go there?
I have travelled Europe extensively in my previous career as a luxury fashion executive. I’ve frequented the fast-paced cities of Paris, Rome, Milan, London, and even Florence. One place I’ve never been is North Wales. I have always wanted to visit the beautiful countryside where my great-grandparents grew up.
Who is your personal hero?
My mom. She is selfless in caring for others and has taught me strength and resilience. She has always been my biggest supporter and one of my best friends.
