 Program Leader • Advisor to Strategic, Creative & NonProfit Initiatives •  EMMY-winning Producer •  Partnerships • 

In my 20+ years working with leading Media, Business and Social Enterprise organizations, I’ve worked with and for an impressive list of creators, leaders, and client/ partners. In doing so, I’ve collaborated with some of the smartest and creative individuals one could imagine to create impactful initiatives that engage audiences and drive meaningful change.

My career spans leadership positions in broadcast television at PBS/ WNET where I built successful media franchises and helped raise over $17 million for programs and EdTech initiatives — to working with top-media companies, such as The Jim Henson Co, PBS Kids, and the Tribeca Film Festival and corporate partners like Toyoto, Intel, and Cisco to US and Irish govt. agencies.

Through PMM, I  work with companies & nonprofits to amplify their brand mission and drive growth through programs, partnerships  and content marketing. I thrive on co-creating, and launching initiatives with my clients and seeing the transformation we can make together for their organization or business. The best part is seeing the impact their project/ brand will have in the community. I love to find the right opportunities for them to plug into, and identify the right strategic partners that will elevate their mission.

Passionate about youth and women’s leadership development, I’m a Director of LEAP (Leadership & Executive Acceleration Program) and Board Advisor to EdSnaps, a STEM focused nonprofit for girls. I am also a member of the NGO CSW/NY’s Advisory Working Group for Beijing+25, a UN Women’s initiative.

I was elected to the Board of Directors of NY Women in Film & TV (NYWIFT) and served for three years advocating for gender equality in the media and entertainment sectors. Overall, I collaborated with NYWIFT for ten years creating high profile events for members and the public; and forming numerous strategic partnerships with film festival directors, industry conference founders and members of the NYC Council.
