I am passionate about helping people & brands market their great ideas, products and services. I love to pull the pieces together for a comprehensive marketing strategy, bringing clarity and vision for my clients’ goals. Marketing platforms are constantly emerging and changing, and I treat it like a sport to stay current and competitive.

My experience includes over twenty-five years in diverse marketing and project management roles, working both small and large businesses—managing individuals, teams, and markets. Every business can be successful with the right tools: the foundation of great branding, a solid marketing strategy, tight execution, consistency, knowing your audience, knowing when to refresh & change, and the ability to be nimble, open and collaborative. The biggest compliment I repeatedly hear is that I LISTEN, and I learn the brand voice and see the needs very quickly.

I am a natural process pro and team leader and effective in getting teams on the same page, with timelines, plans and an insight into exciting strategies that work. My enthusiasm and positivity is contagious and an important goal for my client’s success is to empower and train team members to own their role in the company’s wins.

The Start

 

At age 10, I was the first girl ever on the major league baseball team in my home town of South Orange, NJ – the local press covered it. I was a top pick for the #1 team and I’m convinced some super-power came over me at tryouts to test my ability to deal with the limelight. Next up, a baby-sitting empire at age 12 and being the 8th of 11 children, I had skills. My motivation? I wanted Levi’s, not stretchy hand-me-down pants.

In college, I was a full-time student pulling A’s while making $3k a month as a cocktail waitress in an Atlantic City casino – who needs a sorority sister?  A week after graduation, I drove alone from the Jersey shore to Newport Beach, CA in my Nissan Sentra and a gun under my seat.  Four years of beach-blanket-bingo later, I headed to LA and landed a job at MCA Records from a chance encounter with a New Yorker who “liked my east coast vibe.” It was the start of an amazing career!
