Billing Coordinator & Sales Assistant | PHP


I’ve spent all 30 years of my life residing in New York, bouncing back and forth between Brooklyn and various areas in Queens. Before starting at PHP, I was predominantly working at a travel agency but I’ve also taken on a few Production jobs throughout the years as well.




My youngest nieces, Sienna and Ava. I moved in with these two for almost 2 years shortly after they were born to give my brother and sister-in-law a hand while they were adjusting to parenthood. Although those years were hectic, I’m thankful I got to spend so much time with them.

Two years ago my sister, one of our best friends and I went on vacation to Ireland. We were fortunate enough to visit some amazing places and Ballybunnion Beach was definitely one of our favorites.  

When I was younger I was terrified of flying but now I can’t wait until my next flight. There’s something about being up over the clouds that feels magical.

Fun Fact: I’ve been to Disney World but Universal Studios is by far my favorite theme park.

Describe PHP in 3 words.
Welcoming. Determined. Motivating.
Tell us about your family.
I have a pretty big family including, but not limited to, 4 siblings (three sisters and one brother), 3 nieces, 2 nephews, and a partridge in a pear tree (just kidding about the partridge…although that would be kind of cool). “Loud” is the word that comes to mind when we’re together; it’s a lot of laughs and sometimes it’s even more arguments. With that said, I wouldn’t trade my family for the world and I feel incredibly fortunate to have them in my life.

What would be the movie title for your life?

Have you ever met anyone famous?
I spent a couple of years sporadically working as a production assistant and one of the highlights of my time in that position was having a brief encounter with Steven Spielberg.

We were filming on location in NYC which was coincidentally the building where Meg Ryan was staying and evidently he came over to have a meeting with her. Some of the crew told me he was there but I figured it was a joke since he didn’t have anything to do with our project. As it turns out, they weren’t joking and I literally bumped into him heading into an elevator. He apologized (even though it was completely my fault) and the elevator trip was a bit of a blur because, ya know, Steven Spielberg.
If you could have any super-power what would it be?
I think being able to fly would be convenient. It would certainly save me a lot of travel time.
