Partner & Influencer Relations Consultant
I spent 20 years in professional sales before starting my own company to assist new entrepreneurs in the launch of their own product or service. I have been on both sides of media relations having done numerous media appearances with my own brands alongside pitching and placing clients on local TV segments. I launched Bespoke Influence as a way to help brands increase their visibility by partnering with fun, engaging, and trusted influencers. I am passionate about designing custom influencer programs for our clients and helping they’re business grow. Having a strong background in research and a passion for entrepreneurs, I love uncovering and testing new innovative products and services.
I have been part of the Newsworthy Communications team for 5 years. I like the versatility of my position and being able to do a variety of tasks. It's very rewarding to see our clients receive positive media reception from our efforts. In my free time I love to exercise, travel, and read mystery novels. Florida is my favorite place to vacation, and I especially love Sanibel Island, Marco Island and Key West...and of course, Disney World!
I started my career in television working in various postions including news anchor, reporter, producer, editor and promotions writer. I have worked with the Newsworthy Communications team for over 20 years, assisting with local and national media campaigns, and using my experience to present our clients stories in the best way to secure media coverage. My husband Steve and I live in a Northern suburb of the Twin Cities with our two children where I enjoy running, reading, gardening and wrangling my basset hound, overweight black cat and five chickens.
