She then owned and operated a retail and manufacturing fashion company that produced and sold special-occasion garments for girls and women. In 2001, she enrolled at the City University of New York and obtained a Bachelor of Science in urban politics, cum laude, two years later. Ms. Esagoff subsequently attended the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2008.
