The company went on to say that her interests were quite varied, and they provided some examples of some of her favorite things, such as octopi and other deep-sea creatures, pasta dishes, Montana, crosswords and jigsaw puzzles, scary movies, true crime accounts, fonts, patterns in nature, her friends, her dog Spot, sushi, saguaro cacti, Korean lunches, warm chocolate chip cookies from Pret, whimsical drawings, and naps.
Her mother and father, André and Jennie Bernard, as well as her sister Eenie are the only members of Bernard’s family to have made it to the present day. These three members of Bernard’s family have previous experience working in the publishing industry. Bernard is the patriarch of the family.
