Professional Experience

I am a well-respected journalist-author-editor-educator who specializes in project-based management. I have created multiple publications—including my own award-winning magazine and accompanying website. When it comes to magazines, newspapers, and books, I’m a Jill-of-all-trades. I can manage all editorial from the concept stage to working with an editorial team, including assigning, editing, and writing. I can also manage art and production teams—trafficking is a challenge I enjoy—as well as interface with vendors, including printers and distributors. I also have experience managing advertising sales teams, and understand how both sides of the business need and can benefit each other. I also simply appreciate the fine art of crafting ideas into a polished, finished product. Call me if you need a publisher, editor, and writer with executive management skills to help you produce a book, magazine, social media content, or newspaper.

Other Work History

I was publisher/owner of my own magazine, Long Island Parent, and website, liparentonline.come, for five years until I sold them to Davler Media in Aug. 2012. I continued to work with the company for two years and founded a new magazine with them. Since then I have managed editorial projects, including magazines, websites and brochures for Stony Brook University, Adelphi University, Bonnier Corporation (Working Mother magazine), New Jersey Family magazine, Expos Your Business, Queens Chamber of Commerce, Island Federal Credit Union, Handy Laundry, Blank Slate Media, KGG Enterprises, and Family Caregiver Magazine. I am also a senior adjunct journalism professor and faculty newspaper adviser. Further, I am the author of 42 books, including children's books and How to Publish Your Children's Book, 2nd edition. I am also a frequent quest speaker at events, and on radio and TV programs.
