Hospitality roots: Funny but true, I got my start by default. I graduated from St. John’s University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and English and earned my master’s degree in reading there. In my early career, I was an elementary school teacher. I was also working part-time for my husband’s company. He actually graduated six months early to open the first Everything Yogurt store on Wall Street in downtown Manhattan. I went to work there full-time because it was too expensive to hire a bookkeeper, and payroll companies charged too much.
