During college, I worked in advertising for a high-end department store chain as Assistant Special Events Director. My jobs included writing, organizing, and designing promotional ads and marketing material. I also worked with area non-profits to promote and create fundraising events. When a larger high-end department store chain bought out the franchise rights, I moved forward.
An agent for public relations talent representing a large automaker then contracted me. My jobs included industrial films, commercials, and traveling the USA to radio and television stations. I appeared more than thirty times each year for three years on TV network and radio news specials.
My print work appearances included flyers, newspapers, and ads in magazine issues. My biggest photo shoot (for a large teen magazine) was on-location in one of my favorite places (a.k.a.) the public library.
I vowed my largest commitment ever when I married an awesome coach from upstate New York.
The next seven-years-plus brought curriculum development, teaching at a local community college and a lot of life happenings. The family mingle included freelance writing for business owners and newsletter communications. And the ultimate story within a story…we added five children to the journey.
Whoa! WOW! And whew! The coach and I have had so much fun with this team line-up…full circle.
At present, I live in the Midwest and serve in the digital media community. I love frequenting book stores and techie places in my favorite pair of boots. I work best with an iced tea in hand, surrounded by stacks of books, in the middle of re-purposed 1940’s oak library desks.
