About me

I began my career as an editor at The Orlando Sentinel and still get an adrenaline rush from deadline pressure. I "defected" from journalism to the advertising world, working for Orlando's Robinson, Yesawich &

Pepperdine - a U.S. leader in hotel/resort advertising and named by Adweek as Florida's largest agency - and for suburban Philly's Thomas J. Paul marketing services, where I wrote copy for Nabisco, M&M/Mars, Johnson & Johnson and more. I also served as marketing director for a six-store regional retail chain.

My passion is PR; I hold professional accreditation from the Public Relations Society of America and the International Association of Business Communicators. I also served as public relations director for the Northeast Florida Regional Planning Council.
