Senior Client Service Associate
What do you like about working at Bridge?
The structure, positive attitude, and the desire to contribute that my co-workers display. In addition, there is a feeling of respect for each person’s voice and role.
What’s your background?
I hail from the Hudson River Valley in New York State. I lived in Hyde Park, the home of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as well as Newburgh – where George Washington’s Headquarters are. In my careers I have lived in many states in the USA which gave me the opportunity to experience different viewpoints and appreciate the cultures of the United States. I have served as an instructor for Junior Achievement, participated in fund raising for STOP CANCER, and Juvenile Diabetes as well as other community efforts in my life experiences.
As a co-owner of a jewelry manufacturing company, that employed 53 people I can relate to the cycles that business owners go through. Because we dealt with raw materials, I had the chance to travel to different parts of the world, where gems were mined or craftsman operated. Travelling the world gave me the opportunity to view global industries first-hand and to observe and participate in different business philosophies. My work history also includes working for a direct mail marketing firm, Fingerhut Corporation as a marketing analyst for product placement. My varied business background continues to aid me in resolving and understanding many of our client goals, dreams and needs.
