Prior to joining Trump International Realty New York and embarking on a career in real estate, Chanel worked at APrivateClub.com - a membership based city guide that provides exclusive access to New York culture and entertainment.

She holds a BA in History and is a Graduate with Distinction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition, her overseas studies in Florence and Paris embellished her appreciation for cultivating cosmopolitan culture.

Born and raised in New York City, Chanel currently resides on the Upper East Side but has also lived on the Upper West Side and in the West Village. Her interests include tennis, fashion design and attending exhibits at museums and galleries. She is also a New York Cares volunteer, assisting children with early morning reading and tutorial math sessions.

The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world’s largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. Together, these activities change attitudes towards nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in harmony. WCS is committed to this mission because it is essential to the integrity of life on Earth. Learn more about them on their website.

Katie Couric showed support of the Wildlife Conservation Society on Thursday, June 6th at the WCS Central Park Zoo. More than 1,000 gathered to honor WCS Chair Ward W. Woods and to celebrate WCSs work to save wildlife and wild places.

The gala’s honorary chairs were Amie and Tony James; Lisa and David T Schiff; and Mary and Howard Phipps, Jr.

This event was as spectacular as its setting, held at the famous Central Park Zoo! Imagine holding a glamorous party amid the sounds of wildlife pacing back and forth in their cages…right in Manhattan! Even the heavy rain did not dampen the spirit — or the fun of those who attended. There was great music, a lively crowd and stylish people in glamorous attire all coming together to support a great cause!
