I've never met her, but that's only because my career (teaching) doesn't allow for personal days that I would have needed to take in order to do the Guiding Light gathering, which is in the fall.
I could do the GH gathering some year...if I could find an extra grand laying around, LOL.
But...I've gotten as close to meeting her as one could without doing it! She knows very well who I am because of her official site. In the past, I've been in charge of a daily post at her board and helped with a Q&A chat. I've communicated with her a bit through emails and spoken with her on the phone once: I got yelled at...for not being at the GL gathering. It was wonderful, LOL.
