What do you like about Mustard Lane or just working events in general?

I love getting to work in different atmospheres with my fellow Laners, while also collaborating together to provide a great customer experience at each event.

When you're not on the Lane...what are you doing?!

I am teaching children how to be fit and to love fitness! You can also find me at Target or Tj Maxx!

Favorite restaurant or food?

I love Flor De Mayo on 101st St. I've been going with my family since I was a kid, and I appreciate that they have Lomo Tofu which fits with my vegan lifestyle. Highly recommend! You won't be disappointed.

What is one of your goals for 2024, now that you've achieved Laner of the Week?

My goal is to read 12 books!

Name a place you'd love to travel to, and why?!

I love to travel and I have been to nearly 30 countries - picking one my favorite places is tough, but if I had to choose, I will admit Machu Picchu in Cuzco, Peru took my breath away! I was so astonished by its wondrous views and the architectural aesthetics that I promised myself to visit all seven wonders. Fun fact: later this month I will be visiting my fourth wonder, Chichen Itza!

What's your favorite way to spend a day off from the Lane?

A self-care kind of day: bubble bath, good jams or podcast, a good read, nap, Target or Tj Maxx visits

What music are you listening to these days?

A lot of Karol G.

What's your hidden talent?!

Spanglish; you have to know how to intertwine two different languages into perfect sentences.

If you could have your dream job tomorrow, what would it be?

A cantor for an Ashkenazi synagogue

What's an essential part of your daily routine?

It is extremely essential that I listen to each new episode of Karen Carson In The Morning's, "Blown Off" segment..so hilarious and entertaining.

What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

Adapting to living life in Beijing. Took some trials and tribulation, but after some time I grew to enjoy the challenges.

What is your favorite family/friend tradition?

Celebrating Hanukkah and making delicious home made latkes.

What's a brand or event that you would love to represent or work as a Laner should the chance ever arise?

I'd love to represent or work for Candy Kittens and Sweet Loren's! Both sweet and delicious!

What inspires you most?

My background is more in dance, so I would say that watching choreography, taking dance classes and learning about other diverse cultures when I travel, are things that often inspire me to create my own dance piece(s).
