PERSONAL
Lives in Brooklyn, where she was born and raised, and never plans to leave, until Florida eventually calls.

FAVORITE PASTIME
Being outside. I can walk for miles, on a beautiful trail or the wonderful streets of New York. Bonus points if there’s a culinary treat at the end.

HEROES
Stephanie Izard, Danny Meyer, Mario Cuomo, and all of the tough as nails businesswomen I know and work with

UNFULFILLED AMBITION
I’d like to spend some time on a farm in Europe learning to make cheese or salami or something, where we eat fabulous meals and drink homemade wine out in the middle of the field every night.
