I’m an experienced media professional, starting with my first job out of college as a legislative reporter for a radio station. Television, radio, and newspaper reporters frequently interviewed me about marketing trends and issues while I was managing editor of Advertising Age magazine and then on publishing topics during my time as Writer’s Digest editor. 

Numerous Catholic media outlets have hosted me for programs about the women saints and about ministering to returning Catholics. (Check out some of those interviews there on the right.)

Contact me if you’d like to schedule an interview. I’m succinct, engaging… and always happy to help.
