Where seldom is heard a discouraging word

Get to Know … Angela Freyman

Angela Freyman was born in Ukraine and was 13 years old when she relocated with her family to Brooklyn, N.Y. She attended New York University, earning both a bachelor’s degree (in finance and economics) and an MBA — and married high school sweetheart, Greg, in 2000. She said they were not in love with the “busy city” and decided to move to the suburbs, in New Jersey, in 2015. They did love the suburbs, but not New Jersey and so online research and talking with friends and acquaintances led them to relocate to St. Johns in 2017.
