Monday Profile: Kimberly Scott


Arrowwood Hills Cooperative, Ann Arbor.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Being anywhere near Lake Michigan or Lake Superior with my husband, randomly wandering and following our whims without any concept of time (except knowing when the sun will set).

What is your greatest fear?

Missing a deadline is neck-in-neck with public speaking.

What is the trait you hate most in yourself?

Impatience. It gets me into more trouble than I care to admit.

What is the trait you hate most in others?

Dishonesty. It deprives others of choice and the opportunity to do the right thing.

It's 7 a.m. Monday. How are you feeling?

Focused. Grateful the sun is shining and wishing I had gone to bed earlier on Sunday.

What's your greatest achievement?

In my career, being part of the trial team that obtained the eighth-largest jury verdict in the United States in 2009 in Valassis Communications, Inc. v. News America Inc., Case No. 07-706645 (Wayne County Circuit Court 2007).

Favorite joke:

I can never remember jokes. What's the point when you can't deliver the punch lines?

What do you wish more people understood?

If you put it in writing, someone will find it when you're sued.

If you could have dinner with three people, living or dead, who would they be?

Katherine Hepburn, my great Aunt Cynthia who (as the family tells it) dressed like a man and hopped trains during the Great Depression with someone called the Mad Dog of the Ozarks, and Jim Harrison, an author who helped me appreciate the Upper Peninsula and its wilderness.

Favorite words:

Dawdle. Befuddle. Idlewild.

Where would you like to be when you're 90?

With my husband in Cross Village, Michigan dawdling on Lake Michigan.
