As a longtime communications professional and a former award-winning broadcast and print journalist, my career came full circle in 2016 with the launch of Life in the Ranch. Within the pages of this high-quality N2 publication, I craft stories and share information, turning neighborhoods into communities while helping local businesses thrive. Having earned trust and credibility within the community, I mentor companies to achieve positive publicity through research, brand targeting, and management consultation. On camera and behind the scenes, I have launched and implemented countless media initiatives for enterprises such as community hospitals, private schools, and mom-and-pop shops seeking increased sales and brand name recognition. My passion is creating and telling compelling stories by mixing ingenuity and warmth with intelligence and detail. I’m a recovering New Yorker who’s proud to call Texas home. Outside of work, you’ll find me running along Brushy Creek Trail, volunteering in leadership positions for our local schools and booster clubs, and traveling to new destinations with my husband and three teenagers.
