I love walking through the streets of Manhattan or the East End of Long Island discovering new elements of the world that surrounds me. I have 2 fantastic children on their way to becoming their own unique individuals. I consider myself very lucky to still have my three best friends since elementary school. I am very close and connected to my family. We may be small in number but powerful in feeling. I am passionate about the people and things in my life that are important and through the many ups and downs I have encountered (as we all have) I am most aware that laughing is the best medicine. New adventures create excitement and light me up. Lastly... I really have learned to appreciate the gifts that surround me.
