Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
I am from Bucks County, PA. I lived in NYC for six years and have been in Darien for 4.
 
Child(ren) and Age(s)?
My son is two years old
 
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
This is a hard one because I’m an open book, but I love doing jigsaw puzzles.
 
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
One of my first “mommy” friends Cassie. We have been friends since our little ones were only a few months old. She has become someone I can always count on no matter how big or small, AM or PM, silly or serious. And BONUS, our kids like each other!
 
Favorite things to do with your kids?
Being that Mattox is still so young, I try to keep it simple and low key so we love to go on long “walks” (I walk and he gets pushed). We try to keep our weekends pretty open without an agenda. The beach is always a favorite place to take him.
 
Are you involved in a business venture, local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
Earlier this year, my friend Lily Perry and I launched Faire Évoluer which is a full service closet editing and organizing business. We work with each client to figure out the best way to make their closet functional and enjoyable. The goal is to save them time, which we all need more of!

 
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
There are definitely benefits to living in a small town and one of them is the support people offer. Darien has made it so easy to make someone new to town feel welcomed. Getting involved with RTM and seeing how interested people are in making this town even better so people want to live here. And the mom groups have been such a life line that has made the transition so much easier.
