Let’s talk business and health.

I am a frequent speaker, moderator and panelist and have interviewed some of the top names in fashion including designer Christian Siriano, Rosie Assoulin, Uri Minkoff, CEO of Rebecca Minkoff and Gary Wassner, CEO of Hilldun. I’ve collaborated with The Assemblage, spoken at The Well Summit and hosted events for my community.
