Prue enjoys spending time with her family and friends: skiing, bike riding, walking on the beach, travelling, cooking delicious dinners and laughing a lot. She has a golden retriever Arlo, who loves walking on the beach. Prue is an avid reader and enjoys nothing more than sitting in the garden with a cup of tea and a good book.
