I’m not sure that I have one that I want to share!

What I wanted to be when I grew up: 
My original dream was to be a Math teacher. I know, I know, but I always loved Math!!  My high school Math teacher was an incredible motivator and educator and I couldn’t resist the challenges that he presented in calculus and beyond! At Cornell I got sidetracked and thought that I wanted to be a clinical psychologist.  After a brief stint in retail management I got my MBA at Columbia and then worked my way up in a small marketing company which is how I found my way to Connecticut.  After children came along, I switched to tax preparation which gave me great flexibility – not to mention got me going again with those numbers!  In the blink of an eye, my boys grew up and I was ready for a new challenge. 

My best quality or greatest strength: 
Ability to be a calming force and verbalize different points of view in the midst of highly charged conflicts/emotional situations.

Never give up!! Be tenacious!

My favorite movie: 
Gone With the Wind is a longtime favorite, but I can watch Top Gun and Dirty Dancing over and over again.

Hobbies & Interests: 
My passion is sitting on a sunny beach reading a novel with the ocean waves crashing along the shore, although I love reading all year round.  I also enjoy doing crossword puzzles, Sudoku, playing scrabble, dancing and Jazzercise. 

Favorite vacation spot: 
Almost anywhere with a beach!  

Favorite writer: 
I have too many to name, but love contemporary novels with a focus on relationships and/or courtroom settings. 

Talent I’d most like to have: 
Ability to play the piano really well. 

Little known fact:  
I’m one half Greek – and love the cuisine!

Favorite Restaurant: 
Jimmy’s in Cedarhurst -- great shrimp marinara parmigiana!

Favorite Music Artists: 
Early Elton John, Dan Fogelberg, Phil Ochs, Andre Bocelli, Barbra Streisand and Billy Joel.

Professional Affiliations: 
President of Hamden BNI (Business Networking International), Treasurer of CT CRS (Council of  Certified Residential Specialist)

Community Minded:
