Who am I? Professionally, I can be found happily operating comfortably between 10,000 feet and 10 feet as a creative problem solver finding simple paths out of complex situations. I have extensive experience in marketing, communications, copywriting, styling, and business strategy. I bring a confidence, grounded-ness, and positivity to any team. I am passionate about human connection, innovation, continuous learning, and honing my skills as a compelling writer, speaker, and strategist.
Personally, I am a "family first" kind of gal with two adult children, a husband of 27 years, and a grumpy 13 year old once foster, now permanent cat named Albert (I believe that's referred to as a "failed foster" and it's been my most rewarding failure yet). I am a recycled fashion enthusiast, an occasional personal stylist, a volunteer promoting voting rights in the U.S., and I still speak “un po” Italian after living in Italy for 7+ years.
Warning: if you invite me to play in your Texas Hold'em Poker tournament, I will most likely finish in the top three. I'm not flashy, but I'm usually in the money.
