Associate, Operations Manager

Where are you from?

I’m from Westchester, New York. I grew up in the tiny town of North Salem where there are substantially more horses than people, and everyone knows everyone!

What would Spotify say is your most-played track?

My most played track is probably “You Are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne.

Where is your favorite travel destination?

I grew up with a house in Naples, Florida that my family frequented, so that will always hold a special place in my heart. Besides Naples, anywhere with blue skies, sunshine and clean air.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Nothing is set in stone: there is always room for change, growth, and improvement.

What is something you collect?

I collect birthday cards, letters, and notes—I have (almost) every single one I’ve been given since I was little.

What’s the one app you absolutely can’t live without?

I’m not on my phone that much—honestly! I could probably live without it. But, I do love Shazam.
