Personal:

I’ve traveled to Siberia, Malaysia, Mexico and 46 of 50 states in the U.S. I love going places and meeting new people, but I always yearn to return home. For me, that’s in Hudson with my two children, mi media naranja (si, hablo español), and Pancho, my very best friend because, well he’s a dog and I’m a man. I hold degrees in journalism and visual communication from the University of Missouri and Ohio University. I’ve worked as a reporter, writer, photojournalist, editor, designer, web designer, project manager, consultant, professor and adviser. I love what I do because I’m constantly inspired by my students who bring ideas, enthusiasm, opportunity and optimism to this place every day.

I can help you with:

  • General questions
  • Advertising, Client Relations
  • SM Services, production
  • Philanthropy
  • Strategic planning
  • Idea development
  • Budgets

Personal:

I am a graduate of Kent State University and love everything about my Alma mater. If you don’t find me on campus, chances are you may run into me downtown and throughout Kent, which is the place I call home with my husband and three kids. Two of my greatest achievements are winning an Associated Press award for enterprise writing and being the illustrator of a book jacket.
