Where I Go For...
Fresh Seafood: Larsen’s Fish Market is a great spot for clams on the half shell and to watch the sunset.

Exercise: To unwind, I love the Bikram yoga at Martha’s Vineyard Hot Yoga (West Tisbury).

Takeout: I’m addicted to kale—and I can always find it on the menu at Scottish Bakehouse (Vineyard Haven).

Executive director, Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust

Where I Go For...
An Early Morning Swim: I like taking Mac, my yellow Lab, with me to State Beach at 6 a.m.—it’s the only time we have the area all to ourselves.

Fresh Produce: The fruits and vegetables come straight from the fields at West Tisbury Farmers Market.

Family Downtime: On the weekends, we head to the Flying Horses Carousel. It never gets old.

Chef-owner of Hooked and Atria

Where I Go For...
My Morning Jolt: I start every day with an iced coffee at the lively Espresso Love.

Peace and Quiet: Check out Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary (Vineyard Haven), the perfect combination of trees, pond, and ocean.

A Late-Night Snack: A lot of chefs go to Smoke ’n Bones (Oak Bluffs). I order a beer and the smoked pig.
