- Where did you grow up?
- Philadelphia, PA
- Describe your college experience in one sentence.
- Temple University provided me the solid foundation in Accounting I was looking for!
- How do you enjoy spending your time outside the office?
- I recently got a Peloton Spinning Cycle as a gift from my husband, and I love it. It’s essentially a stationary bike with a touchscreen to access cycling classes taught by the best instructors. It’s a great way to exercise without leaving home and to fit in fitness with a busy schedule. Also, in the summer I love to go down the Shore with my family.
- If you had to choose another occupation, what would it be?
- Broadcast reporter for business news! I have always enjoyed helping others and this would be another way I could do so.
- What is the most played song on your iPod?
- Any Justin Timberlake song. My daughter and I share this interest!
- What is your favorite nonprofit to support?
- While excelling at work is essential, making a difference in the community is equally important. Being able to apply the skills, abilities and connections I’ve acquired in my field to raise money for a worthy cause or cultivate meaningful change is extremely rewarding. For example, in 2015 I was the Chair for the American Heart Association’s Philadelphia Go Red Luncheon and we exceeded our fundraising goal by raising $1,203,000, which was a 20 percent increase from the previous year’s campaign.
