What unusual skills or talents do you have that make you an individual?
I am a red-headed Italian. It is nearly impossible to hide in a crowd when you have red hair! And no one ever guesses my 100% Italian heritage. I am a musician and enjoy playing the piano and singing as a mezzo soprano. You can call me a Broadway fanatic. Still waiting for my Tony!
What is the best thing about your job?
I love knowing that I am making a direct impact on others on a daily basis. I thoroughly enjoy the collaboration with our team and with our clients. No two days are ever the same. It is exciting to provide confidence, through numbers, to our clients and to watch their excitement as they grow their businesses.
