Born and raised in Bergen County, it’s great to be working in Paramus with Inc. Advisors. I graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a BS in Business Management in the early eighties. I started my career on Wall Street, working for a Specialist firm on the floor of the NYSE. I loved the chaotic yet exhilarating atmosphere of the trading floor. I spent five years, eventually managing the firms floor clerks and learning how the Specialist ‘makes markets’, order execution/reporting and trading his own account. I then went to Dreyfus Mutual Funds where I managed a team of sales professionals and met my husband. Eventually, I headed to Citicorp Mortgage to manage a team of customer service reps.
After getting married, I spent several years at home raising my three sons. I was very active in my local PTA and Junior Football Program. I managed the Concession Stand for five plus years raising $10,000 plus to the program annually. During these years, I started a residential cleaning service with an old friend, which grew rapidly, keeping me busy juggling the business and my family. As my children got older, I felt the need to go “back to work” full time and enjoyed several years in the retail arena at both Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.
My true passion in life is my love of animals. During my teen years, my family built a log cabin in Delaware County NY where I spent my weekends and developed lifelong friendships. Our weekends centered around our horses, especially trail riding and the equine discipline of Reigning. Currently, I have an English Bulldog named Wally, two cats, two turtles and a family of salt water fish.
