Ms. Howell graduated from Northwestern University in Chicago and now loves living in Topanga Canyon with her husband and stepson. She adores golf, squash, tennis, skiing, Pilates, ping pong, para sailing and hiking; and is most gleeful when in an aisle seat, squash racquet and mic in hand, heading out with listeners to a jazz fest in Capetown or on the hunt in France for the creamiest polenta ever.
