I know how to get attention—and keep it.

A storyteller at heart, I specialize in creating and promoting compelling angles and as a publicist have gained national coverage for my clients including Good Morning America, The Today Show, TIME, Tamron Hall, New York Post, Life & Style, In Touch, Forbes, The New York Times, MSNBC, Real Simple, Wall Street Journal, MTV, SheKnows, Reader’s Digest, and APlus.

I’ve been self-publishing since college, when I started a music ‘zine turned blog/ online site and then Web TV show (This was before they were cool. Am I dating myself here?) Our all-female staff brought audiences “What’s Hot & What’s Important.” I’ve interviewed national acts including 30 Seconds to Mars, Butch Walker, David Garrett, Hanson, The Used, Good Charlotte, Silverchair, and 311. I’ve conducted backstage investigations on the treatment of circus animals, produced web series Going Vegan and The Road to SXSW, and gotten up close and personal with endangered tigers.

Prior to becoming a book publicist (specializing in non-fiction and memoirs), I secured celebrity judges for The Independent Music Awards, was a casting associate for Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog, worked in corporate healthcare PR, and even represented popular consumer brands. 

I love writing books that empower and inspire people. My memoir/ self-help book, Trash the Dress: Stories of Celebrating Divorce in your 20s, has been featured on International Business Times, The Sydney Morning Herald, Maclean’s, Glamour, Cosmo Middle East, The Globe and Mail and Dr. Oz’s YouBeauty.com. Lately, I have been writing children’s books for–and inspired by–my kids. Get my books.
