A born and bred Jersey girl who spent much of her life in Essex County, with the exception of a fabulous 12+ years in Manhattan. In 2010 she migrated south to Monmouth County, where she loves raising her family near the beach and thoroughly enjoying the amazing local food and drink scene. Consulting for the better part of her career with expertise spanning advertising, marketing, experiential, branding, promotion, and events, she’s been passionate about entrepreneurial pursuits since 1999. Throughout her career she’s led massive projects for top brands including Vanity Fair, O, The Oprah Magazine, CNN, and Courageous Studios, helped produce the first-ever New Yorker Festival, managed talent and sponsorship integrations for the Billboard Music Awards and produced New York Magazine’s annual food event, Taste of New York. Two years ago, she and a business partner purchased Harvest on the Harbor™, an annual food and drink festival in Portland, ME. Her latest creative venture is her new column, “A Lady Walks Into a Bar…,” which will appear twice a month and showcase specialty drink and food reviews from bars and restaurants throughout Monmouth County and the northern part of Ocean County. Find her on Facebook and Instagram.
