How many children do you have and what are their age(s)?
One child and he’s 13 months old.
How long have you lived in Jersey City? What made you decide to live here?
5 years. I was in LA and ready to come back to the East Coast but I wanted to choose an up and coming area rather than settle back into the usual suspects. I had some friends who had already moved here so my husband and I came to visit and fell in love.
What’s your favorite family activity Jersey City?
Riverview Heights Farmer’s Market, walks in Liberty State Park and Lincoln Park
Where’s your favorite place to eat and/or shop in your town?
Eating-wise I am in love with what is happening in Jersey City Heights: Corto, Busy Bee, The Cliff, The Hutton, Square 1 Community Eatery, Bread & Salt.
Shop-wise: Another Man’s Treasure, Hazel Baby & Kids, Kanibal & Co.
What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
That I prefer living in NJ than Italy (where I was born and raised)!
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
My Husband! He’s a super hands on dad who has made it possible to open and run a wine shop the same year that I had my child.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
I am the owner of a boutique wine shop in Jersey City Heights called Riverview Wine & Spirits
Has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
YES. We had and have support from every local community organization as well as the local business and locals in general. I couldn’t have asked for more!
