WITI Women | Lisa-Ann Barnes

On a lighter note:

1. If you could have dinner with any 2 people (living or not), who would they be?
Jimmy Carter and Audrey Hepburn. They are both people who have had a long and rich life, full of fascinating experiences. After they had great success, they used their fame and fortune to make the world better for those less fortunate. Jimmy Carter has done much with Habitat for Humanity, and Audrey Hepburn worked closely with UNICEF.

2. What was the last book you read? What books do you love to recommend?
The favorites this week are "Curious George Flies a Kite," followed closely by "Madeline at the Ballet." I like to read science fiction books, but I can never remember the titles or authors!

3. If you couldn't do what you are doing now, what profession would you choose?
If lifestyle were not an issue, I would be an astronomer. When I had to do a paper on "What will you be when you grow up" I wanted to be an astronomer until I found out I had to go to school for 12 more years!

4. What is your definition of success?
Doing fulfilling work with excellent people, and having time and energy to spend with my family and friends.
