Where did you grow up?
Ellicott City, Maryland
Describe what you do at Antica Farmacista:
I manage the supply chain. I plan how much and when to purchase to keep our products stocked.
Where do you point people who are just discovering the collection for the first time?
Our floral collection is top-notch! Each fragrance captures the aroma of the flower. You can experience your favorite, seasonal blooms in the house year-round.
What are your personal favorites?
Our recent launch of Tarmac is my current go-to. This earthy scent leaves me feeling invigorated. Inversely I enjoy the delicate, powdery notes of our Damascena Rose, Orris and Oud diffuser.
What are some passions you pursue outside of work?
I started road biking since living in Seattle. I’m not speedy, but I look forward to long rides along Lake Washington or on the Sammamish River Trail.
What's the best advice you've ever received?
Honesty is the best policy. My dad instilled this in our family values early, and I’ve found it to be true in any situation.
Is there anyone in your life you truly admire?
Forever appreciative of my mom who raised four kids and recently retired from teaching. She loves to laugh, celebrate the small moments, and has a knack for decorating.
Do you have any early memories that involve scent?
We used to bring my grandma a fresh box of chocolates from a local candy shop. At the time I was most excited about eating the chocolate, but the sweet scent of cocoa and toffee was also memorable.

What might we be surprised to know about you?
Attending musical theater is my happy place. I’d see a Broadway performance every weekend given the opportunity.
Describe your dream getaway.
A trip to the beach is my ideal destination to relax and recharge. There’s hot sand, a cool ocean breeze, and whiffs of saltwater and sunscreen. The only items on the to-do list are to swim, paddleboard, and maybe read a book.
