I am a former television news reporter who has gone to the "other side" as many journalists call it. I own a public relations firm and absolutely LOVE what I do. I am determined to get this work/life balance thing figured out, so I welcome suggestions!
I am a proud mother of 3 beautiful daughters. My goal is to show them that you can achieve anything that they want, as long as they work hard.
I absolutely love barre classes, chocolate and a good glass of wine.
