Michelle Tvedt, Instructional Designer I

Michelle

Where did you grow up?
I was born in Louisiana but grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska, watching moose eat from our garden, northern lights dance in the nighttime sky, and wearing eight layers of clothes because ultimately I am meant for the tropics, not fifty below. 

What's your passion?
I think I am passionate about life itself!! Family, friends, food, travel, so many things to do and see and learn that I will never be bored a day in my life. 

What's your favorite lunchtime meal?
Seafood, sushi, shrimp, fish, if it swims… is my favorite food. But of course, there is cheesecake or pie which are the best breakfast foods around. 

Best pet you've ever had?
Willow Bean is my pugshu and she looks like a pug wearing a fur coat. 

What's your favorite movie quote?
 
“I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.” - Chocolat

If you had to do it all over again you would.....?
Record my kids' tiny voices when they were young so that I can hear them as little people again. 

If you could have any job in the world what would it be?
A travel/food blogger of course. Or a heart surgeon. 

If you could have one superpower what would it be?  Why?
My preferred superpower would be to teleport so I could spend my mornings watching the sunrise on a beach in Kauai, my days working remote from anywhere and everywhere, and my evenings with family who live all over. 

What's one thing most people don't know about you?
Most people don’t know that I am an extreme introvert who can be very happy all alone in a silent space.
