My Dream Vacation… I have always wanted to go on a yoga retreat in Bali. Explore the beautiful nature, the culture and find the ultimate relaxation and calm.
Favorite quote… “Nothing is impossible. The word itself says I’m Possible.” – Audrey Hepburn
My favorite thing about working at Buzz Creators... Definitely the team environment! The office is buzzing with positive energy and creativity. When you are working with a supportive team you can accomplish a lot for your clients.
If I had $1 million dollars to spend... Arrivederci! I would pack my bags, grab my family and friends and head to the Amalfi Coast for a nice long vacation. All the pasta, pizza and prosecco on me! When I got back to reality, I would take what’s left and put it towards a down payment on a home on the water in Tarrytown.
My hobbies are… Cooking, hiking, checking out new restaurants, wineries and breweries, and playing softball. Basically, anything outside, interactive or having to do with food or drinks. 😊 Cheers!
