What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Business development, client relations, media relations. Continue to publicize our exceptional clients.

How do you unwind from a busy day? I cook! Chopping is cathartic. Other times, I sit at the keyboard and belt out favorite standards until the dog howls—or my husband.

Favorite book or author: “And After the Fire,” Lauren Belfer.

Favorite movie: “Best Years of our Lives.” The intermingling of pathos and patriotism is as relevant today as it was in 1946.

One word to describe your work environment: Inspiring

Rules to live by in business: The more you give, the more you receive.

What is your DREAM job? (something other than your current job) Touring with Steely Dan as a background singer.
