What were you doing before you joined the Mark Siwiec team?
Before joining the team, I practiced as a social worker in both Rochester and Philadelphia. My roles at both UR Medicine and University of Pennsylvania focused on building relationships and serving others, making the transition into Client Relations for the Mark Siwiec Team a natural fit!
Where can we find you when you're not at the office?
I am a true homebody! I love being at home with my husband Mike, my kids Emma (11) and Connor (8) and our furry kids Mr. Beefy (an English Bulldog), Miss Kitty and Deliliah. Reading is my true joy and I am usually found reading a good book after tucking the kids into bed. When the weather cooperates, I love gardening with Emma, if I can bribe her to get covered in dirt! Where you will NOT find me? The grocery store. Hate it. Thank goodness for Instacart!
Describe your dream vacation.
My dream vacation would be with my husband. Sorry kids. Someplace on the beach with no clocks. I would be able to sleep in, then drink coffee and lounge in the shade (with a book of course). Nobody bothering us and no chores to do. I may even nap on the beach. At night, a great dinner out with music and my hubbie. After a few days of laziness, we would explore the town and enjoy the culture. Most recently, we went to San Juan and just wandered the town, enjoying the street vendors and soaking up the vibe.
What does a typical Sunday look like for you?
Sundays are sleep in days, the one day we give ourselves permission to be lazy. We usually lay low with family, sometimes going out to breakfast, other days we spend the day swimming, watching movies or having Sunday dinner with my mom. We try not to over-schedule and spend the day enjoying each other before the work and school week starts.
What has been the highlight of the past 12 months, and what are you looking forward to most in the next 12 months?
The highlight of my past year is, well, this may sound strange......the highlight was adding a new family member to our tribe, our English bulldog Mr. Beefy. My husband has dreamed of having a bulldog for years but the time never seemed quite right. I located a breeder locally and surprised him with Mr. Beefy one Sunday morning. It has been true love ever since. Mr. Beefy has added so much love to our house and some laughs too (he is literally like a bull in a china shop!).
