Meet Kim Lagonigro, local mom and owner of Serendipity Boutique!
What do you love most about living on Long Island?
I always tell my children how lucky we are to have the best of both worlds living on Long Island. We are a beach family so we love visiting all the different beaches our island has to offer and we love the city! Such opposites we can experience, yet so close. We are just so lucky to have it all.
How many kids do you have and what are their ages/anything else you would like to share abou them?
My husband and I have 3 children- Mia is 16 and a sophomore at Sayville HS and our twins Michael and Ella who are 13 and in 8th grade at our middle school. Mia has a rare form of Down syndrome called mosaic Down syndrome. It’s when some of her cells have an extra chromosome like you see in Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome). Mia loves swimming and art classes. She is also a part of our high school’s integrated sports program and they will be participating in this May’s Long Island Special Olympics.
What do you want or wish for most for your kids?
Oh how I wish for them to be happy and fulfilled. And to feel filled with our love and proud of themselves for their accomplishments big and little.
Why did you decide to launch your business?
What are three words you would use to describe your business and why?
Tell us more about your business!
What motivates you?
My children motivate me. What an incredible example I can be for them. They see my dream coming true right before their eyes. But they see the realistic part of it-the dream, the planning, the work, the sacrifices. All of it.
