About Me : I was born and raised in New York City. In 2010 I decided to leave my banking career behind and travel the world. While in Corsica I met my Italian husband and have since moved to his home town in Tuscany, got married and had a baby girl named Dafne in December 2014. While breastfeeding Dafne, I was inspired to launch Teat & Cosset, a collection of timeless wardrobe essentials to help nursing moms meet their breastfeeding goals without sacrificing their style. My passions outside of running my business include travel, classical ballet, wine tasting, eating out and, above all, spending time with my family.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?: It is difficult to meet entrepreneurs who are also moms and going through the same struggles, ups & downs. I would like to cultivate my network of peers not only for work but also for friendships.
What are your brand goals for this year?: Since we only launched Teat & Cosset a couple of months ago, my brand goals for this year are to increase brand awareness and become the go-to brand for stylish breastfeeding moms. Part of that is increasing our social media presence and spreading the word through loyal customers, bloggers, media and press. I would also love to collaborate with like minded brands focused on helping new moms look and feel great.
Words you live by/quotes you love: Life: All things pass, both good and bad so don't dwell on anything for too long.
Family: Separate work from home. Only focus on one thing at a time.
Me: Taking care of myself is just as important as nurturing my family.
Shopping: Buy few, buy better.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?: Nothing good every came easy. Persevere and persist with a clear goal in mind and you will never fail.
