About me

Location Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Introduction It started in 1984 with "Knots Landing" star Donna Mills’ videotape on make-up. The idea of blending peacock blue, electric green and shimmering fuchsia eye shadow was too remarkable to keep a secret. Eager to share my knowledge, I invited a bunch of friends over for a free application. Fortunately, they were able to wash off my handiwork with some soapy water and elbow grease. Since then, I have toned down my make-up, and turned up my desire to help women celebrate their inner beauty. For the past 15 years, I’ve developed a successful career in public relations working for Oscar Mayer, JCPenney, Barnes & Noble, and PETSMART. I’ve interviewed with more than 350 television, radio, magazine and newspapers, been honored with the IABC’s “Communicator of the Year” award, and named to the Phoenix Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list. I’ve also coached hundreds of teams and individuals toward success, and speak about generational differences, communication skills, and discovering passion and purpose in life. In my spare time, I flip through fashion magazines, hoping turquoise glitter eye shadow, parachute pants and big hair bands will make a comeback.
