Interview by Tammy Lee, Marketing & Communications & Digital Manager, Advance
How long have you been in New York? What made you move there?
I’ve been in New York nearly half my life having moved here for ‘2 years’ when my husband was transferred for work in the early 90’s. He didn’t have to ask twice for me to join him.
