After college, I worked in management consulting at Bain & Company, then switched my career into marketing.  A highlight: launching the White Diamonds fragrance line and hanging out with Elizabeth Taylor and her 8th husband Larry Fortensky at all the launch parties.  Many brands followed Elizabeth Arden, Neutrogena and Pepsico to name a few and consumer product marketing became my career.

Moving many times (Boston, Manhattan, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Rye, NY) and landing back in Boston gave me some key survival skills and a BIG taste for travel.  I figured out how to decorate a house in record time so my family wouldn’t feel the upheaval of moving.  I also acquired a lot of DIY skills and decorating shortcuts to get what I wanted at a reasonable price.

I graduated with a Leadership & Performance Coaching Certification from Brown University in October 2022. A career pivot from Marketing! If you are interested in learning more, click on the COACHING tab at the top of my blog.


We have two fabulous daughters – one working in the TV “biz” in LA and one working in marketing in NYC.


We have a 17+ year-old dachshund named Rhino who loves to pose in my blog photos. And sleep. And eat (a lot).
