12119088_10207228766825036_7887642667589863499_nWhat do you do when not the friendly face behind the desk?
When not at CCY I am usually outside with my 2 pit bulls, Harley and Roscoe. I spend a lot of time with them at Blue Hills hiking :)

Where are you from and what brought you to Boston?
I am originally from Winchester, MA. After 13 years of moving around and living in Vermont, Utah, France, Germany, London, and California I finally got home sick and moved back about a year and a half ago. I definitely did not move back for these amazing winters …. my entire family lives in the area and it made me sad to watch my niece and nephews grow up on Facebook, I wanted to be closer so I would be a bigger presence in their lives :)

Fun fact about you?
I went to school for art education and I love to oil paint.

Latest Yoga breakthrough?
Being able to sit still.

Insiders tip?
CCY hand picks clothing companies that are eco-friendly, ethical, and down right comfy and stylish. From using recycled bottles in their fabric (Third Eye Threads) to donating 10% of their profits to charity (Inner Fire) you can guarantee you will be supporting eco-ethical company.

What has been the most rewarding aspect of being behind the desk?
Being part of the CCY community has been life changing for me. I love interacting with clients and staff. Everyone has such an amazing journey and I enjoy hearing and talking to people about their experiences.
