One of Zucker’s most recent joys is a small on-line store called The Chandelier Succulent Company. “Living in California with a major drought taught me how to raise plants that are drought tolerant. I started making gifts for friends in recycled glass jars and of course they suggested I sell them. I’m looking forward to seeing The Chandelier Succulent Company grow (pun intended)”. Zucker has recently become VP of Operations for Lux Soul Traveler. Lux Soul creates travel and lifestyle content for social media outlets.
