I was born and raised in New York City as well. I work as an HR Manager for a non-profit, helping the organization with maintaining employees. I enjoy what I do because there are always challenges that come up where I have the opportunity to find creative solutions to help address problems. When I am not working, I enjoy watching sports such as baseball and hockey. I also like visiting museums and learning about the history of a place or a house. In my spare time, I enjoy working on home improvement projects.
Growing up in an Italian family, I spent weekends visiting my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We watched baseball games on TV, played outside with our cousins, threw around a frisbee, played catch, and for a family tradition, we played bocce ball; A game where my father, aunts and uncles taught me at a very young age as kids of all ages can play. To this day, during a family outing, we still have a lot of fun playing bocce ball. It is one of my favorites because it brings the whole family together as we work in teams, pitting family members against the other family members. I cannot wait to share this family tradition with a child.
