I was born and raised in Connecticut by my two hard-working parents; my dad was a tool and die maker and my mom was a florist. Since both of my parents owned their own businesses, I quickly learned the value of hard work and dedication at a young age and throughout my childhood. For many years I helped with the accounting work at my father’s shop while he worked and created tools. Later, I was a salesclerk at my mom’s florist shop. I knew then that numbers were my thing – after graduating high school, I attended University of Hartford and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.
Three days after college graduation I started working in the accounting department for a commercial Real Estate developer in Fairfield, CT. I started out as a staff accountant and I worked my way up to assistant controller. The company grew very quickly but always maintained the small company family feel to it – we all worked well together as a team and we were all friends. With the company growing so quickly, I decided it was time that I go back to school – I graduated from Sacred Heart University with my MBA in 2001. In 2017, the owner of the company passed away unexpectedly and without him at the helm, the company began to struggle financially. In the beginning of 2021, I decided it was time that I begin looking for new opportunity and I luckily saw the job posting for Holler Law Firm. One of the most important items I was looking in my new job was to work at another family company. I wanted to know who the owner was and have the owner know who I was and did not want to feel like just a number! Since Holler was working remotely due to Covid, my interview with Rosa and others was virtual. Even though I was not in person, I was able to get the family feel of Holler over my virtual interview and knew this was the type of company that I wanted to work for. To say that I was very excited that they offered me the position of Accounting Manager would be an understatement! I began working at Holler Law Firm in April of 2021 and since then, I wake up every day happy to go to work, to learn something new and be with my work family.
When I’m not at work I enjoy traveling, gardening, scrapbooking and spending time with my family.
