How many kids do you each have and what are their ages?
Just 1 little girl (for now). Her name is Riley and she will be 2 on July 1!
What are your favorite family activities in Stamford?
We love going to the Ferguson Library to find new books to read, going for walks in the Taylor Preserve off of June Road, playing in the pool and playground at Roxbury Swim and Tennis Club, exploring Mill River Park and the new Discovery Center.
I also enjoy pointing out the wildlife that meander through our property to my daughter, tending to our herb and vegetable garden, riding my Peloton bike and volunteering with the Stamford Land Conservation Trust.
What do you like about living in Stamford?
I like that we have a little bit of everything! Open space (parks and nature preserves with trails), great community events, tasty restaurants, beaches and beautiful coastline and the harbor with easy access to the Sound. Stamford has a small town feel but the attractions/amenities of a metropolitan city.
Tell us about your career.
Originally from California, I earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of California at Davis.
I’m a Licensed Real Estate Agent on the Staci Zampa Team at Compass. I’ve recently joined Compass but have been involved with luxury sales my entire career, from closing high-end private golf club memberships in Westchester to selling millions in diamonds in New York City.
I was recognized with a Business Council of Westchester 40 Under 40 Rising Star Award in 2015. As the daughter of a general contractor, I was raised around ground-up construction and renovation projects.
Why did you decide to join the Staci Zampa Team?
After meeting Staci for the first time, it was an EASY decision to join her team. Her 17 years of real estate expertise and association with Compass and their technology platform were what initially attracted me to her. Her enthusiasm to mentor me as I develop my career was what sealed the deal.
What’s the most fun thing about your job?
No two days are ever the same and finding creative solutions to challenges that arise with specific properties.
How do you juggle work and mommyhood?
I do my best to balance the energy and effort that I invest into my career and my family. I try to be kind to myself and remember that I’m not super-human. I’ve gotten better recognizing what I can actually accomplish in a day (or during nap time) and am satisfied with what I get done even if the list of things to do is still a mile long.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve gotten from another mom?
Put your proverbial oxygen mask on first, then help your family.
