The Director of Business Development for Zebra on the power of ’80s music, the beauty of New York City and why day skiing should be a required duty.
What’s the most cherished item in your office?
My coffee mug. I think that’s pretty self-explanatory.
What’s your favorite time to get things done?
Early in the morning. I love waking up before everyone else in the house during the week or weekend and get moving.
What’s the soundtrack that plays in the background of your office?
Oh, that’s easy. Every day, all day ’80s.
Name the band you cannot take off your playlist.
I actually listen to a lot of podcasts—murder podcasts. While walking to work in NYC early in the morning, I don’t advise doing this.
What does a typical workday look like?
Get up early, workout, head to the train. I live in CT and commute to NYC. I get to work, grab my coffee, check emails, make calls, etc. But, of course, something always comes up, so you go to roll with it. I love atypical days.
What’s the craziest thing that has ever happened to you on a job site?
Nothing happened to me, but I learned the history of NYC buildings. Literally, if those walls could talk…
What are you binge watching right now?
Station 11. Read the book, amazingly halting.
What’s the coolest thing you have done since the pandemic hit?
It was cool to me since I couldn’t do it before, but skiing with the kids in the middle of the day. Because I was working from home and home schooling, it was pretty freaking sweet. Lots of last minute trips, like deciding to go Jamaica on a Sunday night and arriving Monday morning. The best.
What has this experience taught you?
Enjoy the moment, seize the day, just have fun and don’t overthink it.
If you knew what was going to happen, what would you have done differently?
I would have headed down south, out of the country with the family for sure.
Favorite comfort food.
Any type of Mediterranean food.
Best advice you ever received?
Truly, do what makes you happy, not what you think someone wants you to do.
Biggest influence in your life?
This is tough, but I would say my first boss at Seventeen Magazine. She was a force. I learned that women can, do and will have positions of power while imbuing honestly, intelligence, kindness and, of course, humor.
What trait do you most admire?
I cannot choose one. Humor, honesty and resilience.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Wow, take the chances, let life happen, travel more, have a gyro at 4 a.m. Oh, I did that.
