Lives In: CHELSEA - NYC
About me : Wife to Justin ( camp boyfriend, known for 23 years, dated for 13, married for 8) and mom to Julian (3.5). Petite, raspy voiced, New Yorker by choice, but a New Jersey girl deep down, super organized, gregarious, a tad cerebral, and could have been a great concierge. I also love nothing more than a great Italian red wine followed by a dance party at home with a lot of 80's/90's hip hop.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At : Planning! Throwing parties!
I recently left my job at Coach, where I was responsible for all of their special events and celebrity dressing. For a total career change, I launched a catering company, The Dairy, with a close friend and amazing chef. I'm running the business, coordinating all of our PR & marketing, acting as the CFO, building the website - anything that happens outside of the kitchen. Even though it is a major career change, my obsession and knack for planning is a major asset.
Interested In : Having just launched a new business, I'm looking for clients! We have been busier than I ever anticipated, but of course I'm thinking about the future and about new people we can introduce to The Dairy. Most catering companies are either run by chefs or run by a business person. It is really unique and I believe effective, that we can bring both to the (literal) table. I'm just too busy learning to run payroll, be a mom, and renovate my new apartment to network so hopefully Hey Mama can help.
+Cooking & Baking - They don't let me cook at work.
+Yoga & Exercise - I love to sweat, Russian bathhouses work too.
+Vintage Shopping - I was lucky to inherit amazing pieces from my mom and love the art of the find. I also love wearing things that nobody else can get their hands on.
Mama Inspiration :
+Lindsay Weinstock- My college roommate / wonder mom of two kids who also fundraises millions upon millions of dollars a year for a pretty important client - President Obama. She was able to work his re-election campaign while pregnant and help secure his victory. Luckily, she also helped secure him as a client of The Dairy!
+Linda McCartney- She was so ahead of her time and she snagged a Beatle! I'm pretty obsessed with her photographs, and she raised such talented children. She was also a pioneer of vegetarian cooking. The ultimate hippie.
Brands that most reflect your style or that you’d want to work with:

+Love Shack Fancy- Designed by my BFF Rebecca.
+Anita Ko - For the sickest jewelry.
+Old Tracy Feith
