About

I’m a no-nonsense award-winning professional radio news reporter, PR entrepreneur, online editor and speaker with 30 years of experience.

I broke into the fiercely competitive news world at the ripe age of 12. I brought the news to people (via my stingray bicycle) with an afternoon paper route in my hometown of Edison, New Jersey.

In 1980, I enrolled at Quinnipiac College in Hamden, Connecticut. I was hoping to write for Rolling Stone magazine. Then I found the campus radio station.

Armed with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communication, I began my career as a broadcast news reporter, on-air anchor and news director in the New Jersey/New York media market.

I’ve interviewed everyone from homeless people to presidents. I also had the privilege of being Deputy Director of NJ Governor Christie Whitman’s Office of Radio and Television and have worked as public relations director for a statewide nonprofit, The Arc of New Jersey.

In 2000, I opened a media relations and PR consulting firm.

I’ve won a bunch of broadcasting awards along the way and have been honored by the Edison (NJ) Chamber of Commerce as “Entrepreneur of the Year.” Also, I am a certified practitioner in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP).

My latest accomplishment: Being named one of the ‘Top 75 Badass Women on Twitter.’

On the personal side, I’ve been married (to the same man) for 29 years. We have a grown daughter and son. We live in San Antonio, Texas and get back to the Jersey shore whenever possible.
