Fun Facts

  • I’m a proud Philly-area native from Haverford Township. Go Eagles! Go Wildcats! I loved being part of a large public school system and equally loved attending Georgetown University (even though my mom, dad and brother all went to ‘Nova), where I made the most incredible lifelong friendships and was a member of the Track & Field team.

  • I spent my 20s living in New York City (which, in my opinion, should be a requirement for everyone!). I had so much fun there, but I also worked my butt off… with a full time job by day, earning an MBA from NYU by night, playing on at least three club basketball teams at a time, and somehow convincing my now husband, Jeff, to marry me.

  • My 30s brought me back to Washington DC when Jeff took a job with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Wow, DC sure looks a lot different through the lens of a young parent than that of a college student!

  • Lately I seem to be focused on the fact that my kids are growing up way too fast… especially my oldest, who has a rare genetic disorder called KAND, which stands for Kif1a-Associated Neurological Disorder ( Having a daughter with a disability has been an all-consuming and somewhat defining aspect of parenting for me and my husband. It has also drastically shaped the character of our two sons, a gift for them that they likely won’t fully understand for a long time.

  • I feel very lucky to be a genuine sports fan. While of course that can be both a blessing and a curse, attending or watching almost any sporting event is an activity that I will jump at— and we have planned many a vacation around our favorite teams’ schedules!

  • Current ways I fill my free time: nightly family dinners and tv time (thank you, pandemic!), chatting around the fire pit, home fitness, biohacking, puzzles, scrabble, boggle, Audible, chilling with our two adopted sister Maltipoos, Fairy and Stardust (yes, they came with those names).
