About me -

Originally from Sweden, I grew up outside of Philadelphia and moved to NYC after graduating from business school.  With a Bachelors degree from Bucknell University and a Masters from Vanderbilt University in Business, my education prepared me to set up a well-run company and team. As a working mom of 3, time management has become an essential part of life and I've translated this mindset to the way we run Maypole as well.  Time is our most valued resource and we value our clients' time as much as our own.

Spend time with my husband, children and dog, baking, being active, and DIY projects. 

How I contribute to the client's experience -
