Beth manages a co-working, co-living and community space in New York City for those who believe in doing well by doing good. The Assemblage is a huge part of Beth’s life because after 25 years in the corporate world, she finally found a company interested in bringing health and wellness in the workplace.

Beth is a wife and mother of four and her passion is working with kids. Beth launched a kids party planning business in 2016 and enjoys bringing joy and celebration into the lives of her own children and others.
