What is your favorite aspect of your job, your business, or your industry?
My favorite part of my job is curating products for the store. The world is my oyster, and i get to pull from around the world and bring unique products into the store. I also love that I get to work with food, how could you not like to do what I do? Retail is a tough industry to be in. I credit my customers with keeping me smiling everyday. I truly love what I do, so the toughest industry is easy for me. 

Can you tell us something impactful you have learned in the last week?
One of my high school seniors (an employee) completed a project recently and wrote about working at the store for the past five years. It is heartwarming to know that I was able to make an impact on one young life and lay the groundwork for her to be sociable and organized and use these skills at college.

What does your business mean to the community?

Who are your three favorite business leaders in the community?

Why Valley?
The Women in Business program offered by Valley as well as incentives given to female owned businesses/small businesses are the right fit for me and my business. Also, the personalized service given to me by each member of staff at the Rockville Center (RVC) branch goes a long way. I want every customer that comes to my shop to have a great experience, and the staff at Valley in RVC thinks that way also.
