Age: 35, but I turn 36 on January 29th!
What did you want to be when you were a little girl?
I wanted to be a TV reporter and anchor… and I was for 10+ years!
What are some different jobs you’ve had in your life?
My first job was as a carhop at Stewart’s Root Beer Stand in Marion, Ohio. Then, I was a server/bartender throughout college before landing my first job as a TV reporter/anchor. After working in the news business, I worked at a PR agency for six months before starting my own PR agency. Now, I run my own PR agency, blog, and freelance as a TV host.
What do you work toward in your spare time?
I like to read books – both fiction and non-fiction. I also just started barre classes. Those are challenging! I’ve been thinking about taking up the violin again. I haven’t played since elementary school.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I’m more of a night owl, but I love to go to bed early when I can. My kids are morning people, so I guess I’m up early because they force me to be 😉
What are you most proud of?
Personally, I’m proud of my kids for being smart and kind to others. Professionally, I’m proud of the business and team I’ve built and continue to grow.
What are you known for?
I do a lot in the media, so I’d say I’m most known for that – whether it be on social media, TV, online publications, or on podcasts… I’m there!
What inspires you?
I love learning, so reading books and listening to podcasts keeps me inspired and wanting to learn and do new things.
Tell me something about you that most people don’t know.
Most people don’t know that I graduated from one of the smallest high schools in the country. I was one of 19 people in the class. I’ve also delivered a TEDx talk to more than 1,000 people about “fake news”, and I am obsessed with things being cleaned and organized!
Why did you apply to be an O Mag Insider?
I’ve loved Oprah ever since I was in grade school. I work in the media industry and Oprah is a media mogul. Oprah and her brand = a lot of amazingness packaged together!
How do you live your best life?
I do what I want, when I want. This was the main reason I started my business – to be able to be in control of my future and call my own shots!

What’s a day in your life like?
I have a newborn at home, so it’s catering to the newborn cries while running my business and caring for my other two kids. My days are no longer as structured or organized as they once were!
