I am a journalist and digital +  content strategist with nearly a decade of experience in growing audiences for publishers, media companies, and brands.  I am currently the director of audience development for Tasting Table, a food, drink, and lifestyle publication, where I lead a team overseeing all aspects of audience growth.

In my career, I've led social media teams for NBC News, MSNBC, and Travel Channel, and advised a number of brands on how to grow their audiences using social media and distributed platforms. 

I'm also a writer, and have written about media, tech, and women's issues for a number of publications. I've also had essays published in three anthologies, including the Amazon Kindle Serial "The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Women."

I have a weekly newsletter called The Week In Lady News, where I curate the best news and commentary by and about women each week. Subscribe here!

I'm passionate about promoting and supporting women, connecting with good people, cooking at home, and enjoying the best restaurants New York City has to offer.
