Education: "I went to three universities. The last was the University of Michigan, where I majored in philosophy."

Family: "My husband, Mark, and two cats who think they are our children. Their names are Poco and Cello."

Where do you live? "Clearwater, Fla."

What book did you read most recently? "The last trading book was on the subject of optimizing trading systems. The most recent novel was 'Where the Heart Is' (by Billie Letts)."

What's the last movie you saw? "Atlas Shrugged." The book was 1,000 percent better. My husband and I are great fans of Ayn Rand, but the movie didn't live up to the book."

Where do you go to relax? "We bought a house in the mountains of North Carolina. I saw a picture of a house on the Internet and emailed a picture to Mark, and he said, 'This is the mountain house I always wanted.' We get out there two or three times a year."

Where do you get your financial news? "CNBC and the Internet."
