I believe effective communication and engaging storytelling can solve problems, achieve business goals, and even change the world. Currently, I am a Senior Communication Strategist at a digital technology agency and collaborate with the great minds there to help them connect with clients and prospects in inspired and creative ways.

Prior to this, I worked as a producer for ABC News for more than ten years. Highlights include producing the online pro-social video series, Standing Up For Heroes with Bob Woodruff and serving as the control room producer at Good Morning America where I managed all of the visual elements for the broadcast under extremely tight deadlines and, most days, very little sleep.

I left network news to work as the Senior Director of Digital Strategy and Communication for The Shriver Report, a media initiative founded by Maria Shriver, and launched the site ShriverReport.org.

I also created HereWeAre.Today, a blog about navigating single motherhood in New York City (and now Connecticut), gave a TedX talk titled, Rebranding the Single Mom®, and have contributed to LifetimeMoms.com, Huffington Post, HuffPostLive, ShriverReport.org. My work in this space addresses and captures both public and private issues surrounding single motherhood.

I got my start in communication by graduating with honors from Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications with a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism, and a minor in Sociology.

I like to call myself a runner because I’ve finished the New York City Half-Marathon 3 times, but if I am being totally honest (and I sort of can’t help be anything but) speed is not my strong suit. So I am a jogger…a dedicated, leisurely, jogger. And an occasional CrossFitter.
