ABOUT ME

Before starting my New Jersey-based freelance business, I was a reporter for a small daily newspaper where I earned awards in news writing and photography. I began my own business as a way to help other people get attention, communicate and persuade. I am a skilled listener dedicated to meeting my clients needs, and consequently, some of my working relationships have lasted more than 15 years.

I am a former board member of the Public Relations Society of America, New Jersey Chapter, and current president of Toastmasters of Westfield (a public speaking organization). My husband and I live in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, where we thoroughly enjoy running and bicycling on the county's beautiful back roads.
