Before I became a journalis, I practiced corporate law for seven years, representing clients like JP Morgan and General Electric, and hen worked as a negotiations consultant, training all kinds of people, from hedge fund managers to TV producers to college students negotiating their first salaries. My clients have included Merrill Lynch, Shearman& amp; Sterling, One Hundred Women in Hedge Funds, and many more. I ent to Princeton University and Harvard Law School.
From all this you might guess that I ’ m a hardcore, wonderfully self-confident, pound-the-table kind of person, when in fact I ’ m just the opposite. I prefer listening to talking, reading to socializing, and cozy chats to group settings. I like to kno before I speak ( softly). I ’ ve ever given a speech without being terrified first, though I ’ ve given many. And so I fee that everything I ’ ve ever accomplished, in love and in work, I owe to these traits, annoying though they may sometimes be. I ’ ve explored this paradox in my first ook, QUIET.
I live on the banks of the Hudson River in an 1822 captain ’ s cottage with my beloved husband, sons, and magnolia trees. My favorite activities are reading, writing, lounging around cafés, and doing the mambo with my family. I use a lot of old-fashioned expressions. A few times a wee, I try to like cooking. I ’ m insatiably curious about human nature.
