WHO I AM
I’m infamously known for being a “Jill of all trades”: your biggest cheerleader, the calm in the midst of a storm, a negotiator, therapist, confidante and my favorite role of all….friend! Born and raised in Westchester, NY, I moved to Manhattan to pursue a degree in Psychology at Pace University and immediately became immersed in the food & beverage service industry while working in college. What I deemed was simply a “season” in my life developed into a passion, talent and knack for all things entertaining and events. But what about my dream of being a Psychologist….the female Sigmund Freud? The famous quote is true…"tell God your plans and He’ll laugh at them!” Twelve years later with an extensive career that includes planning events for radio, television, Broadway and the music industry alike, serving as the Director of Special Events & Assistant General Manager of a notable New York City restaurant and most recently as a wedding & special events planner for a Brooklyn-based catering company, I launched “EbML”. When I’m not making dreams come true, I volunteer with and fundraise for various non-profit organizations that uplift and empower girls and women.
