Concierge medicine at The Morrison Center in midtown.

11:30am Museum Hack Walking Meetings

Meeting Tasia and Sarah (also hi Ethan and Kate!) at L’Apicio, our co-working space in the LES hosted by Spacious.

We did a walking meeting around Sara D. Roosevelt Park, just south of Houston. I love walking meetings! They have become a fun tradition for me and Tasia when we’ve been working out of Spacious locations in the LES.

I love walking meetings!
