I am a veteran journalist who has spent more than 35 years in radio and television news. I have worked as a radio news anchor, talk show host, television reporter, videographer, and as an Assignment Editor. After leaving the business in 2006, I decided to start my own media consulting business where I coached baby boomer women on how to market and promote themselves for media exposure.
I am also the author of three Amazon best-selling books, Whatever! A Baby Boomer’s Journey Into Middle Age (2006), which takes a humorous and inspirational look at growing older. The second book, How to Get on the News without Committing Murder (2016), offers tips on how to self-promote, and The Baby Boomer/Millennial Divide, (2018), offers insight on how older adults can get along with young people in the workplace (2018). I have been featured as a baby boomer expert on MSNBC-TV and in the New York Times newspaper. She is listed as an Influencer for Baby Boomers by the online website, 4Retirees.
In addition to being a Professional Writing Consultant at a local University, I host online public speaking and writing sessions for students and adults on YouTube. I also facilitate conversations on racism with diverse panelists around the country monthly via Zoom. In addition, I have two blogs (BoomerWorld, BabyBoomerBev and have written for or been covered by HuffPost50, Forbes.com, and U.S. News and World Report. My video podcast, The Boomer Beat, airs on YouTube.
I absolutely LOVE being able to help others find their unique voices through the verbal and written words but my greatest joy is being a wife, mother and grandma! Please join me in my All Wordz Matter Community, won’t you?
