People say I'm a conversational public speaker. I can attest to being a life-long TV fan. Growing up in the Midwest in the 70s, the idea of ever making it to NY or LA to be in the entertainment field was simply unthinkable. So when my nest emptied, I started a podcast and named it Advanced TV Herstory.
In 8 years of podcasting, I've learned so much. My work grows with your feedback, ideas and perspectives. Please listen to the podcast and drop me a note about your TV memories and impressions. In an effort to reach a larger audience, I am hard at work on two manuscripts. Our e-newsletter contains regular updates on these labors of love.
Consulting areas: Executive public and reputation relations and strategic planning, Strong knowledge of higher education, healthcare, government at all levels, participation/engagement strategies and working successfully with boards of directors.
