I became General Manager of Islands Executive Suites in April of 2005 which had a varied blend of business professionals . In 2009, Julia Spain and Terri Roman came on board as office space tenants for their individual private practices. As their practice grew, along came a few other colleagues and counseling professionals leasing office space which brought a sense of synergy and collaboration. Julia and I often spoke of the possibility of the suites eventually becoming a wellness center of Counselors and Therapists. In early 2018 Terri and Julia made it happen! They became owners of Islands Executive Suites and formed Gilbert Counselors. I am so grateful to be part of such an amazing group of people that strive selflessly every day to empower, counsel, and guide those that are in need within our community.
I am originally from New Jersey and have been in Arizona for 25 years raising 2 beautiful daughters. My husband and I have recently become empty nesters and are navigating through this next stage of our lives. Our fur babies, 2 English Mastiffs and a Frenchie have become the benefactors of this next phase as they pretty much get our constant undivided attention since our girls left to build a lives of their own.
I come from a large Italian family and embrace my Sicilian culture. It is my hope and dream that when I become a Grandma that I can continue to instill my Sicilian heritage filled with the love of food, good wine and family. Ciao!
