Not only does she attend numerous social events around the New York metropolitan area, but she is in the midst of preparing her daughter Allyson for college and assisting her real estate developer husband Bobby, with the family business, Zarin Fabrics. Bobby is the owner of Zarin Fabrics Warehouse and Home Furnishing, which was started by his father.
