Madeline Senel joins the ArtistsDolls team!
My daughter-in-law Madeline Senel is now an active member of the ArtistsDolls team and will be helping with all aspects of the business. Over the following years I'm sure that she will build on the relationships that we have with all our valued members, clients and artists alike.
Madeline escaped the hustle and bustle of working in New York for a hedge fund to come to Florida for a little slower pace of life. For the time being Madeline works as a secretary at a local school but she is helping us out with smaller parts of the business. In the near future the plan is for Madeline to take over running the business as I am not getting any younger! She is a very personable lady and a quick learner so I'm sure that she will be running things very soon.
