Q: What is a typical workday like for you?
A: Every day, I create the weekly/weekend housekeeping schedules and check lists for both our residential and commercial teams.

Additionally, I work closely with our General Manager Emily and the on-site team on furniture upgrades and renovations, promotional items and amenities, department budgets and meetings, and social media engagement for The Franklin through our Facebook and Instagram channels.

My goal is to make everyone a raving fan of the Franklin Residences!
Q: What is your favorite amenity or service at The Franklin Residences and why?
A: Being a Philadelphia native, I love everything about The Franklin and its rich history, but I must say our beautiful lobby is my favorite. It was designed by prominent American architect Horace Trumbauer, who also designed the Philly Museum of Art, and it’s just breathtaking!
Q: What is your favorite quote and why?
A: My all-time favorite quote is by Diane Keaton – one of my favorite actresses, too!
“I’ve always loved independent women, outspoken women, eccentric women, funny women, flawed women. When someone says about a woman, ‘I’m sorry, that’s just wrong,’ I tend to think she must be doing something right.” To me, it’s a reminder to women that we are strong and can do anything we set our minds to despite social norms. It inspires me to never doubt who I am and to always be my true self.
Q: What is your favorite spot in Philly and why?
A: I am a huge foodie and enjoy going out to eat and trying new restaurants in the city! Steakhouses like Del Frisco’s and Ocean Prime are a few of my favorites to name, and I also can’t resist an authentic Philly cheese steak every now and then from Steve’s Steaks or Dalessandro’s.
Q: What’s something interesting about you that we might not know?
A: I have quite the diverse background. I am of Filipino, Italian, Irish, and Greek ethnicities.
