With more than 20 years experience creating, developing, writing and branding compelling (and pretty darn funny) parenting, lifestyle, pop-culture, humor, and educational content online, in print and on screen for major media outlets such as TODAY.com, HuffingtonPost.com, E!, Mom.me, Momtourage, and CBS/Los Angeles.com, Penguin Books, Bloomsbury Children's Books, Los Angeles Magazine and more, I bring my unique 350 degree perspective to your project and help you build your brand through entertaining, engaging, “must click” content.

I am savvy, motivated, reliable, and crazy active on social media.
