What recent project, transaction or accomplishment are you most proud of?
My female colleagues and I launched the Long Island Professional Women’s Supper Club, sponsored by Farrell Fritz, in October of 2019. The mission of LIPWSC is to build meaningful relationships among women in the real estate and finance industries. We had recognized that women network differently and enjoy getting to know each other on a more personal level and in an intimate setting, which can be difficult to achieve at typical real estate networking events that are usually overwhelmingly attended by men. LIPWSC met every month prior to the pandemic, and we have conducted various virtual events to stay connected in the past year and a half.
