"...I attended Stuyvesant High School in Tribeca, where I was a member of the debate team and participated in some theater productions. My favorite subject is and has always been English, so it is no surprise that I entered the publishing industry after college and am loving it.

"... During my time in college I was the president of my all-female a cappella group and had the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Kyoto, Japan. In my free time I love to cook (I have worked in a couple well-known New York restaurants), read, sing, play piano, explore cities, eat, and travel.
