I moved to Peekskill in 1986 from Queens at the height of the condo boom, and immediately fell in love with this area. Working in Manhattan made it hard to take advantage of all the Hudson Valley has to offer, but now that I can work from home I can both enjoy and participate in this vibrant community. I feel fortunate that I've been able to "reinvent" myself after the economy hit my former career (Lingerie sales for a large manufacturer) hard with so many retailers going out of business. With Talk Fusion, I now work with businesses of all sizes helping them communicate more effectively using a video platform-from email to broadcasting, conferencing and even video blogs - Cisco says that by 2014 90% of internet traffic will be video based, and I believe in staying ahead of the crowd!

The best part of what I do is going out and meeting so many pro-active business owners. So many of those I meet have also reinvented themselves and it's wonderful to see the passion people have for what they do.
