Mentors and how have they assisted you in your career: I have had the privilege to work and learn from many great people.  I would have to start with my husband, Mark.  He is in the business and helps the work and home balance as we both respect each other’s career.  The people you meet in this business can be inspiring mentors.  I work with Jayne Bozzuto who inspires me to pursue my career and keep my family with me at all times.  I have learned the most from my current supervisor.  Paul Serrantino is very honest and hard working.  He has inspired me with the best work ethics, and I strive to develop all of them.
