What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? As a project manager, I oversee a wide range of architectural projects in New York from ground-up large scale developments to interior fit outs. I am currently completing the Ingersoll Senior Residences in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. When it’s complete in early 2020, it will be the largest LGBT elder housing in the United States. 

How do you unwind from a busy day? Movie night with the kids, popcorn, wine for the adults and snuggling on the couch. 

Favorite book or author: Gillian Flynn - love the suspense and wit

Favorite movie: “Pitch Perfect” or anything with a musical theater flair and a touch of comedy 

Last song/album that you purchased/downloaded? ”I’m Still Standing”by Elton John (at the request of my three-year old)

One word to describe your work environment: Collaborative

Rules to live by in business: Be a good listener and delegate often

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? Tina Fey for her comedic charm and aspiring wisdom; beers and food at the meatball shop in New York. 

What is your DREAM job? (something other than your current job) Open a practice with my husband with a small café at the base of the building which we could own and operate simultaneously.
