7 years


Q: Where are you from originally? What’s your favorite part about that area?

A: I’m from Chatham, New Jersey. My favorite part? Jeez…tough question…I actually didn’t love being from northern NJ (laughter). I guess I’d have to say being so close to New York City.

Q: Do you still have family there?

A: I do. Extended family. Aunts & uncles, etc.

Q: How did you find your way into the ETS family?

A: I actually got the job through a mutual friend of both my family and Ian & Aaron’s. I started as an administrative assistant to Aaron, worked my way into production, then project management and finally to Director of Project Management.

Q: When you’re not building Handbooks, what keeps you busy? Any hobbies?

A: I love the outdoors. I enjoy running, hiking, etc. My dog (Keira; a chocolate Labrador) also keeps me busy. I love animals; I’m part of a local rescue and shelter program for dogs in Maine; ‘Canine Commitment.’

Q: Any guilty pleasures?

A: (Morelaughter) Ice Cream.  Oh; Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups too!

Q: What’s your favorite food? Where’s the best place to get it in Portland?

A: Pizza. Otto’s is phenomenal. They just opened 2 locations in downtown Portland.

Q: What (or who) is currently receiving the most plays on your iPod?

A: Eta James, Doris Troy. Lots of ‘older stuff.’

Q: Do you have a favorite movie? Who’s your favorite actor / actress?

A: I think right now my favorite movie would have to be True Romance. Favorite actor? That’s tough…probably Daniel Day Lewis.

Q: Who’s someone in your life that you admire and why?

A: I’d say my mother. She’s awesome. She’s done a really good job of leading a happy and positive life. I strive to do the same. Also my “Slovakian Brother;” Paulo Kocvara. He lived with my family as an exchange student. He came to America, at age 16, on his own, speaking NO English and made it. He taught me a lot about perseverance and self-reliance
