About Me

I am delighted to join Houlihan Lawrence after many years in the opera performance world and journalism field. I received my Master of Music degree in classical voice from Manhattan School of Music as well as a Master of Arts degree in Print Journalism from the University of Miami. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in music, specializing in vocal performance from the University of Miami Frost School of Music. I have performed in several productions and festivals with various opera companies both nationally and abroad including Arezzo Opera Festival (Italy), Opera Theatre Music Festival of Lucca (Italy), Salzburg Festival (Austria), Vocal Productions NYC, Center Stage Opera (PA), Opera in the Ozarks (AR), etc. I have also freelanced for several publications including The Miami Herald , Key Biscayne Magazine and International Yachstman Magazine . My vast experience in communications for several industries including the arts, education, finance and wellness space has honed my ability to bring awareness and attraction to these fields via face-to-face communication as well as through print and online resources. I was previously a Content Writer and Marketing Coordinator at Fitspot Wellness, a Soho-based company focused on implementing mind-body wellness initiatives in the modern workplace to foster higher productivity and enhanced engagement among corporate employees. Additionally, my past tenure at a non-profit organization, The Hewitt School, offered me a platform to communicate with a purposeful team of educators, administrators and families in support of higher education and creating a new mission to cultivate and nurture the empowerment of young girls. As a Manhattan born native, I grew up in New York City, attended private school (The Hewitt School) and music preparatory school (Mannes College of Music) during my formative years and returned for my graduate studies (Manhattan School of Music) and lived there the past ten years (Upper West Side and Upper East Side). Likewise, I am proud to call Fairfield County my home as my family has been residing in the town of Ridgefield since 1995. I received a phenomenal education attending Scotland Elementary School, East Ridge Middle School and Ridgefield High School while participating in the extracurricular sports teams and musical groups. I know the ins and outs of Ridgefield and have witnessed its incredible transformation throughout the years while always remaining true to its original character. Likewise, I am exceptionally familiar with the surrounding areas of Westport, Wilton, New Canaan, Darien, Stamford and Greenwich. My love for real estate began while living in New York, with helping moving friends, family and start-up companies find their ideal home and/or office space coupled with a neighborhood that fit their unique tastes, needs and functionality. Especially as Covid hit, more people have realized that a work-life balance is attainable and have begun the exploration to find new areas outside of major cities that offer cultural amenities, more open space and distinguished alternative school districts for children. I inherently understand how one's physical surroundings directly impact their physical health, psyche and happiness and that’s why it’s so crucial to choose a home and location that speaks to you and compliments your specific interests and needs. Through Houlihan Lawrence’s unparalleled 133-year history as the real estate market leader North of NYC and my own personal experience having moved from Manhattan to Fairfield County, I can offer my clients and prospective buyers keen insight into our local real estate market. Utilizing a customized tailored approach and prime marketing initiatives, I would be honored to help guide you in finding your perfect space or assist you with confidently selling your current home!
