Out of Office

You can find me outside the office… exploring New York one coffee shop at a time in the mornings or watching a Celtics game in the evenings.

named my dog… after the basketball arena at my alma mater. Boiler up!

Three countries I’d love to visit are… Portugal, Argentina, and New Zealand.

My favorite vacation spot… Asheville, NC.

My favorite Cardea Group memory… is getting the offer to join the team, with many more to come I’m sure!

I’d describe my clients as… the kind of people you’d want to have a drink with after work.

I admire my candidates most… when they have a strong sense of the direction they want to take.
