What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am overseeing The Greenwich Lane in the West Village–a five-building, five-townhouse, 198-unit complex that’s towards the tail end of construction. 

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I am addicted to cardio kickboxing classes! I go roughly 5-6 times a week and it’s been an amazing source for some much needed stress relief.

Rules to live by in business: Treat everyone working with you with respect and see them as a source for learning.  

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go? It would be amazing to have a casual dinner with some of the great women in history and today–Gloria Steinem, Malala Yousafzi, Susan B. Anthony, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Zaha Hadid, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama…the list goes on and on.
