What is your favorite salon or spa?
Avalon Salon in Millburn. Family-run, this salon is welcoming, friendly and has the best manicures, pedicures and threading.

What is your favorite local health and wellness center?
F45 in Millburn has become my addiction, not only for the killer, sweaty workouts…but the incredible community vibe.

Where is your favorite local place for home decor?
Paper, Ribbon, WrapΒ  in Millburn has beautiful items to decorate your home at affordable prices and the most amazing gifts, many of which are customizable!

Where is your favorite local daytime hangout?
Liv Breads in Millburn. The coffee is strong and delicious, the space is bustling with energy and the almond croissant is out of this world.

What is your favorite nighttime hangout?
We love to go out to dinner with friends (I miss this so much) and frequent The Summit House, La Pergola in Millburn, and Jockey Hollow in Morristown. If they have a good wine list and yummy cocktails, it’s a sure WIN.

What is your favorite local place to do business?
I love to have meetings and events at The Book House in Millburn. The space is well designed, and Nadege is generous and welcoming. I love being surrounded by books.

What is your favorite “Made in Jersey” product?
Hand-lettered art and signs from Adorn Market. Erika Guzman is a true artist and makes the most incredible, inspiring pieces that I love for my own home and to gift my clients.

What is your favorite New Jersey downtown district?
I love Millburn, because that is where I live…but I also love the village feel of Maplewood.

What is your favorite New Jersey-based service business?
I am so lucky to connect with hundreds of amazing women in the NJ area. One of my favorites is Sarah Walton, a business mentor – speaker – author in Bergen County. She continues to make a HUGE difference for the community of women in business. Her mission is to get more money into the hands of women. She has encouraged and impacted so many of us while always feeling approachable, warm and inspiring! If you don’t know her, you should!

#TBT to the great panel I sat on "Women in the Workplace and the Art of Negotiation". Of the many things I love speaking with women about it's money. It's important for women to re-learn how we see it, how we receive it and how we ask for it in our businesses and our careers.β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Why?
