Emily: Originally from New York City. I moved here from the city 9 months ago and really love it.
I have one son, Max, who is 5.
What is your local go-to store for children’s clothes? Shoes? Furniture? Kid’s clothes: Crewcuts; kid’s shoes: Little Eric’s; Kid’s furniture: Restoration Hardware Baby + Child.
I haven’t lived here long enough to attend many town events, but I’m looking forward to attending more this summer. I’ve also loved hosting events for my non-profit organization, Compass Kids. We’ve been doing a pilot program this year where we have done monthly events to introduce young children to volunteering and community service. It has been so much fun and so rewarding.
I like Eastend and Le Penguin in town – and I have also really enjoyed discovering some of the restaurants in Port Chester, which I call the “Brooklyn of the Greenwich area” for food, including Saltaire (great seafood), Tarry Lodge, and Coals pizza (our favorite for family pizza nights).
What is your favorite kid-friendly recipe? Fish tacos in lettuce wraps with pineapple salsa and avocado. It is a great way to get kids to eat fish.
I love doing yoga and pilates, and am passionate about all things wellness-related. I think we need more of the cool boutique workouts from NYC and LA in Greenwich, and am working with partners to try to bring some of them to town. I’m always up for anything active outdoors as well. Coming from the city, I’m really enjoying all of the hikes that can be found right in town, particularly in the Montgomery Pinetum, Tod’s Point and Babcock Woods.

Our mission is to involve kids ages 4-6 in volunteering while giving back to our community in a meaningful way. We are wrapping up our successful Greenwich pilot program and planning to launch more formally next Fall.
