Ulrike Smith headshotWhere is your hometown?

Worms, one of the oldest cities in Germany.


Greatest accomplishment or achievement?

Learning a new language and overcoming the culture shock of moving to the United States.


What is your favorite season/time of the year?

The vibrant foliage in New England and the seemingly endless seasonal rituals to partake in make fall my favorite season.


Mountain or beach?

Definitely the mountains and the Alps specifically; where winding roads and long passes cut deep through mountains and connect lush valleys and lead to some of the most beautiful lakes in the world.


If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

That’s easy: dark chocolate.
