Vice president, Charity by Design –

Alex and Ani LLC

Age: 35

Why did you select your profession?

When our founder, Carolyn Rafaelian, spoke to me day in and day out about Charity by Design, it went from being a conversation to an actual business model. … I pinch myself every day knowing that this is what I get to do.

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?

“You can’t have it all,” because all that statement did for me was ignited my competitive spirit. … I plan to prove it wrong.

What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?

The older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

What is your favorite Rhode Island escape or hobby?

Newport on lively summer nights. Hands down.

What one thing in your professional life would you like a do-over on?

I can’t say there is anything I would do over because even the mistakes have provided me with a solid lesson. •
