Just for Fun!

Tell Us Your Favorite Thing(s) to Do in Charleston.

Plan a full day of vegan food. We usually start with some Huriyali for breakfast, go for a stroll through the historic district downtown and have lunch at Basic Kitchen. Then dinner and drinks at Neon Tiger completes the day. We also love to host house parties with huge plant based tapas spreads.

Where is Your Favorite Place to Eat/Drink in Charleston?

Tough question! I love the smoothies at Hustle, Park Cafe avocado toast, and picnics on the beach.

What’s the Craziest Experience You’ve Had with a Client?

I would probably say the time a client tipped me in Cliff Bars. She gave me 50 Cliff Bars and apologized for not having cash on her. I thanked her and I ate Cliff Bars all the way home.

Where’s Your Favorite Place to Travel Outside of Charleston?

I love Europe because that is where I am from. I am a great skier and try to travel north once a year to get my snow satisfaction.
