Activities and Interests

Collettey's Cookies I currently work in the North End of Boston for a woman with Down Syndrome who couldn't get hired anywhere. After facing rejection from employers, Collette, my boss, decided to start her own cookie company. Her goal is to employ thousands of disabled people around the world. Currently, I serve as a baker, as well as a mentor for my coworkers, who have disabilities. Collettey's Cookies Web Page
Cafeteria Boston I am currently a waitress on Newbury Street for a restaurant called Cafeteria Boston. I manage up to 7 tables per shift and love working in such a people-oriented, fast-paced environment. Cafeteria Boston's Web Page
Barre and Pilates One activity that I really enjoy is going to barre and pilates classes at a studio in Cambridge called Barre & Soul Yoga Studio. It gives me a chance to release and get a good work out in. I also find it improves my mood. Barre & Soul's Web Page
