Get to know Ed!

If I could invite anyone, living or dead, for dinner, I would ask:

“George Washington. Without him, I’m not convinced the United States would have gotten off the ground. He was a remarkable leader.”

My favorite vacation spot:

“Almost anywhere outdoors—at the mountains or the beach.”

A hobby I wish I had more time for:

“Exploring more of our national parks.”

What makes me happy:

“Finding joy in everyday life, fulfillment of purpose, and a passion for learning with my family.”
