As we all know, there’s considerably more to MAFSI members than being a rep or manufacturer, and we want other members to know about it! Are you passionate about a particular philanthropic cause? Are you a huge foodie, always at the latest restaurant? Maybe you’re an avid skydiver. Whatever it is – we want to know about it — and SEE you doing it. If you’re interested in participating, or nominating a fellow member, click here.

1. Tell us about your morning ritual.

 I wake up at 6AM, make a smoothie, walk my dog, answer emails, grab a coffee, and hop in my car or on the subway for appointments.

2. What's your favorite non-work activity, and why?

Yoga. It helps keep me balanced in all areas of life. 

3. What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?

I am so proud to have married my best friend this past September. My husband is an incredibly kind, hard-working, inspiring person and I am so fortunate to be his wife. He keeps me laughing.   

4. We know it wasn’t in commercial foodservice, so what was your childhood dream job?

To be a writer for Pixar movies.

5. Guilty Pleasure: What can you not live without? (i.e. Reality TV, specific junk foods, 80’s hair bands, etc.) 

Cartoons! I love cartoons and watch them every night.

6. If Hollywood made a movie of your life, who would play you in the lead role? 

Jessica Chastain or Emma Stone 

7.You can choose any restaurant in the world to have your last meal. What is it, where is it, and most importantly--why?

This is a tough question!! It wouldn’t be at a restaurant, it would be at my Grandmother’s house. She makes an annual lobster dinner every summer that is off the charts. If I had to choose a last meal, it would be that with the people I love most.

8. If you had one piece of advice to give to a young person in the industry, what would it be?

Patience is key and relationships are everything. Stay humble, work hard, and be kind.
