My favorite thing about my job is:
I get to work with some very talented people. We push each other to do better and celebrate our successes together.

The people who inspire me most are:
My grandmother has always been a huge inspiration to me. She grew up in Ireland in a large family, immigrated to the United States with my grandfather, raised 4 children, and then worked a full-time job. She never went to college, but she’s one of the smartest and most well-read people I know. She is more tech savvy than any adult her age and gives me great financial advice on my 401k. Women in power, such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg or Michelle Obama, also inspire me. These 2 women in particular broke down doors that were closed to them. They have paved the way for many other women to aspire to greatness.

My favorite movie is:
It’s a tie between Goodfellas and Clue. I am big fan of gangster movies. If you haven’t seen Clue, do yourself a favor and watch it!

The best part of waking up is:
Having another day in this world with the ones I love the most.

My top 5 favorite singers are:
Frank Sinatra, Beyonce’, Chris Botti, Jay-Z, and Billy Joel (I have a very eclectic taste in music)

If I wasn’t a Marketing Director, I would be:
I’d like to think I’d be a backup dancer for a celebrity on tour or maybe a Rockette. I took competitive dance through much of my childhood. I still love to dance – all it takes is a good beat to get me moving!

The top 3 songs on the soundtrack of my life are:
“I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” by Whitney Houston, “My Prerogative” by Bobby Brown, and “My Way” by Frank Sinatra

The actress who would portray me in a movie or TV show about my life would be:
I’d like to think J-Lo would play J-No.

My hidden talents include:
I can quote a good majority of comedy movies and TV shows at random. I am also exceptionally good at identifying the title and artist of a song within 3 seconds of hearing it.

Something others may not know about me:
I love shoes and I love to box. So if I ever need to defend myself, I can use my stiletto or my mean right hook to incapacitate someone.

Additional details:
I am a huge fan of the Golden Girls. I own the entire series on DVD and have watched it several times over. I enjoy cooking, writing, and spending time with the love of my life and our two dogs. I am very blessed!
