Describe what you love about what you do: My passion is putting people and ideas together. We represent a variety of clients from national companies to dedicated non-profit organizations. I feel like I have the most interesting job there is as through our work we not only learn about a broad spectrum of businesses but are able to develop strategies and partnerships that bring our clients together for mutual benefit.

Favorite MuseumThe Historic New Orleans Collection

Favorite Clothing Store: Chatta Box (ask for Rebecca!)

Name something about New Orleans that can always put you in a good mood: I love “playing hooky” on Friday afternoons in the French Quarter. A group of friends may start with lunch at Galatoire’s then head to some of our favorite meet-ups such as the Carousel Bar and Patrick’s Bar Vin. It is the perfect combination of good food, sparkling cocktails, lively music and most of all good friends-all with the backdrop of the historic French Quarter.

Through their example, they have inspired me to live the best life ever.
