Get to know another new EMERGE Lakeland member.  She's creative and loves the beach!  Read below to learn more about her!

Q. Are you originally from this area? If not, where from? 

A. I was born in New Jersey, lived in Maryland for a few years, ended up in Long Island, New York, before I came to Lakeland. I call Shoreham, NY, my hometown since that's where I've lived the longest.

Q. What do you do? 

A. I'm an Associate Producer at Indie Atlantic Films. 

Q. What do you like most about your job/profession? 

A. I absolutely love what I do! I think what I enjoy the most about working at Indie Atlantic Films is that I'm surrounded by an amazing, talented team of passionate creatives/storytellers. I've learned so much from all of them these past few years and each of them has helped me grow in the film industry. Also, I love getting to know our clients and hear their story. It's so rewarding to create a film that shares their experiences.

Q. What are some of your hobbies? 

A. My all time favorite thing to do is go to the beach. If I'm not there, I'm usually designing, photographing, writing, or reading. Anything that's creative and/or challenging is pretty much my hobby.

Q. What’s your involvement in the community? 

A. Around our community, I've been volunteering my photography and design services to some local non-profit organizations, and creating designs for local businesses and friends. I also recently joined the Marketing Committee for EMERGE. I'm hoping to get more involved in our community.

Q. If someone sees you at an EMERGE event, what are some topics they should ask you about to get the conversation going? 

A. Anything really, I love meeting new people! If I had to pick specific topics, obviously anything that has to do with film/TV (Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Saturday Night Live, to name a few), coffee, or music.

Q. What do you like most about Lakeland? 
A. Hands down, I love the people here. They work hard, and want to see others in our community succeed.
Q. Why did you join EMERGE Lakeland? 

A. I joined EMERGE Lakeland primarily to network and meet new people, as well as become more involved in the community.

Q. Anything else you want to add? 

A. I'm looking forward to what's in store for this upcoming year. Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
