In one word: Easygoing

Grew up in: The Bunk (aka Kennebunk, Maine)

Current NYC Neighborhood: The Burg (aka Williamsburg)

When I’m not working I love to ride the Iron Horse around the city.

Favorite Internet meme: I didn’t really know what a meme was until fairly recently.

Typical Uber ride: uberX-ing into the city when I decide to wear heels out.

My ultimate vacation getaway would consist of Bali and friends.

 

NYC Favs…

Brunch spot: Santos Anne in Williamsburg is my new favorite.

Season: Summer in Maine. Fall in New York.

Museum or historical site: Central Park

Spot to chill and watch the sunset: Battery Park (with plentiful rosé wine and cheeses, please)

 

Fun fact: Mikaela has a fondness for drag queen brunch, and even had a hand in planning last year’s Big Gay Brunch (which featured celeb drag queens as judges) when she was at Underground Eats.
