Tell us where you are from, what brought you to Florida, and how long you’ve lived here.

I was born in Debrecen, a large city in Eastern Hungary. My Family moved to Florida, so I followed them 12 years ago.

Where do you work, what is your job title, and what does your job entail?

I am Chief Stewardess on The Grand Floridian yacht. My job entails everything to do with food and bar service, cleanliness, employee training and coordination with the galley. I am also a personal assistant and “right hand” to a life coach and family of five in Key Biscayne.

How did you initially become interested in the marine industry?

A dear friend got me interested and I was hooked immediately.

What is your favorite or most valuable benefit of membership in MIASF?

Being in the middle of the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show and the many wonderful members we get to interact with year after year.

Big Brother Big Sister, American Cancer Society, and Humane Society of S Florida

Tell us about your hobbies and what kinds of things you do for fun.

Any outdoor sport…biking, volleyball, basketball. I love to cook and enjoy reading. My two-and-a-half-year-old son!
