This month’s Meet a Mom… Debra Cohen. If you know Debra, she always has a million balls in the air. Take a moment to learn a bit more……
Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
I’m originally from Long Island. I’ve lived in Rye Brook for 13 years with my husband Larry and our 2 kids – Hayden 11 and Josh 8
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
Rye Brook is a very small town and it’s great to have so many friends always willing to grab your kids and help you out!
Favorite things to do with your kids?
We love to go to Dave & Busters-we love arcade games, we’re a very competitive family!
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I bake Challah and I love to come up with different flavors!
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
Two years ago I started Bling in the Burbs-a business that specializes in personalized and special order gifts for camp, college and everyone on your list. Whether it’s helping a first time camper pick out all their essentials for camp or ordering personalized end of year teacher gifts we have endless options at all price points.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
So much of my business is through referrals and word of mouth. I try to get to know my customers needs and wants and carry items I know they are looking for. I really appreciate the support of so many people in the community that return to shop over and over and send their friends to me!
