What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I lead branding, corporate identity initiatives, and promotional campaigns across all 6 of our brands.

We will be launching on-demand courses very soon!

One word to describe your work environment: Inclusive.

Rules to live by in business: Be genuine and spend less time talking about ideas and more time making those ideas happen.

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? Candace Cameron Bure – I admire her values, entrepreneurship, and her influence as a mother. We’d go to Jacob’s Pickles on the UWS.

What is your DREAM job? (something other than your current job) I’d love to create a program where middle and high schoolers can learn about careers, finances, and entrepreneurship.
