What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I was just promoted to Director of Marketing. Our immediate push is to update our website. AKF has done a tremendous amount of work to get our clients safely through this pandemic. My goal is to continue to grow and market the firm as a resource during these trying times and beyond.
How do you unwind from a busy day? Watching Real Housewives with a glass of wine.
Favorite book or author: “Becoming” by Michelle Obama
Favorite movie: “Dirty Dancing”
Last song/album that you purchased/downloaded? I can’t remember. It’s been at least 10 years.
One word to describe your work environment: Collaborative
Rules to live by in business: Work to live, not live to work.
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? I would invite Barack Obama to dinner at my mom’s house. She would get to meet him and he would have some good Haitian food. I haven’t been to a restaurant since March 2020.
What is your DREAM job? (something other than your current job): I would love to own my very own restaurant. There aren’t enough sit-down Haitian restaurants.
