As a result, she enjoys loud and vigorous debates on social activism interspersed with periods of sitting quietly among others. As a design thinker she alternately applies the dueling methodologies she observed while growing up in the kitchen of the Stein Greenberg household: the creative, experimental, stir-fry-genius-who-never-follows-a-recipe approach of her mother and the perfection-seeking, ingredient-weighing precision of her bread-baking-pasta-making father.
