How long have you lived in Westport?
Thirty-three years, but I grew up on Route 136 on the border of Westport and Fairfield and spent a lot of time in Westport growing up. My husband is a fourth-generation Westporter.
Favorite place in Westport?
Compo Beach. I feel like I'm on vacation when I'm there. We enjoy so many family events there.
Favorite restaurant in Westport?
Splash and Positano's. I love the calamari salad at Splash and everything at Positano's.
I love the family history that we have built here. By attending the Westport public schools my children experienced many academic opportunities that they probably would not have received elsewhere. They were afforded the opportunity to attend almost any college of their choice and were well prepared for it and life after college. I love living near the water. I love the fact that we are so centrally located and can be in New York City in 45 minutes or a very different landscape if we travel 45 minutes north.
