More About Me

Tell us about your career journey and how you ended up here.

I grew up in the toy business. After college, I worked at Sky Kids, Inc., a NJ toy company where we created, manufactured and sold arts & crafts, play food, dolls & doll accessories, and licensed goods from Sesame Street, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Hostess, Green Giant, Wizard of Oz, WWE and more. I always wanted to be an attorney so I decided to go back to law school and now work with companies and entrepreneurs to help them protect their brands and businesses.

Describe yourself in 5-7 words.

I'm enthusiastic, optimistic and fun, but also determined, detail-oriented and passionate about business and brand protection.

Tell us about a time when you thrived at work, and what you learned about yourself from that experience.

I love speaking to audiences about licensing, contracts, trademarks and copyrights. It makes me realize how much I love helping people spot important legal issues.

What is your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of what I do is helping entrepreneurs and business owners demystify legal so they can protect themselves.

How about when you "turn off" and go home? Any hobbies or fun activities you are involved in?

I love spending time at the beach and catching up on a good TV show.

Any must-read, must-watch or must-follow recommendations?

As an avid Star Wars fan, I'm in the middle of binge watching Mandalorian. Jon Favreau is doing a great job.

Anything else you want to share with the WIT Community?

Women in Toys, Licensing & Entertainment is an amazing organization! I am so grateful for all the wonderful people I've met and the opportunities I've had because of it!
