What her favorite thing about HYPE is: The people! When I joined HYPE I didn't know a soul and quickly developed an amazing network of friends. At this point, I cannot imagine my life without them. I also really enjoy being on the Social Events Committee and working alongside that dedicated group to organize and plan fabulous events around Hartford.
What her hobbies/interests are outside of work: During my free time I love to run. I just finished a half marathon in March and am looking forward to full race schedule this summer. When I am not training, I love nothing more than a great glass of red wine and am always on the hunt for the perfect cupcake!
The book she is currently reading: I am currently reading ‘Not That Kind of Girl’ by Lena Dunham. “Would you recommend it”: Absolutely! I have found myself laughing out loud while devouring her journey and life advice. If you are a fan of “Girls” and admire Lena for her amazing accomplishments, you will love this book!
What would you do if someone gave you a million dollars: I would take my family on a once in a lifetime vacation! Following that adventure, I would support the charities near and dear to my heart and then, perhaps, splurge on my dream convertible. Contact Information:
