Story
Tagline
I know how to get your news to media that matter to your business or organization.
Introduction
I love spreading news. I was once a news reporter, so news comes naturally to me. Now I am a digital PR activist. People tell me I'm really great at getting them coverage - whether it's in print, broadcast or digital and word-of-mouth outlets. I also love being a mom, an entrepreneur, a great cook and a loyal friend. 
Bragging rights
I'm best at connecting your business to the media that matter.
