How do you make a living? OR What is your everyday passion?

I am a semi-retired educator and multi-passionate entrepreneur who enjoys new challenges. I co host a local radio show called “Play, Passion & Purpose”, where we showcase conversations designed to give our audience a boost of fun, connection, and knowledge. In addition, I am an Ambassador at the Javit’s Center in NYC where I give tours to guests and school groups on sustainability and urban rooftop farming. Lastly, I enjoy participating in B- roll projects, print modeling and other one day gigs.

Coffee, tea or … ? Tea, green in the morning and chamomile or mint all day long.

What’s your idea of a perfect weekend day?  Driving up to Woodstock for a long hike during the day followed by dinner and a Broadway show in the evening with my family.

What’s your favorite local restaurant? Mesob because you can eat the plate and Raymond’s for their al fresco dining.

What’s on your nightstand?  At this moment a classic that I’m reading “The Betrothed,” a box of tissues, and my gratitude journal.

What are you listening to? Any and all Broadway soundtracks.

What are your current indulgences? Dark chocolate, a monthly massage, grounding in my backyard on a blanket, and finally, Italian music from San Remo.

What talent you would most like to have? Convincing my daughters I know what’s best for them.

What’s the worst-kept (or best-kept!) secret about your town? Montclair Heights is less than a 2 mile bike ride to Montclair Center and a great walk uphill to Montclair State University. Long live 15 minute cities!

What do you hope they say about you at your funeral? She achieved her purpose of fearlessly pursuing passions, sharing soul satisfying conversations, fun and laughter. In addition, she cherished new experiences and ideas while supporting others in feeling seen and heard and finally realizing not to use run-on sentences.
