My primary focus is to be the best wife I can be to my husband Paul. We have been married 16 years. I am a mother of four beautiful children, Katy (27), Kirstian (25), Sophie (14) and Paul Conner (11). I also get to be a grandmother to beautiful Grace (5). I have two pretty amazing sisters, Cheryl and Lesley and my parents, Richard and Billie are absolutely a huge part of my life. They are not only great parents but also have a role model marriage for me to follow - they’ve been hitched for more than 50 years! My business partners are Lisa and Tracey and we are typically undertaking some kind of crazy-ass adventure, which I love. I am fortunate and blessed to love my job which is really something I’m super passionate about. I just love what I do for a living.
I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading and digital scrapbooking. I love golf and figure skating. I am way into technology - loving all facets from the end-user consumer experience to the “stuff” that sits behind the firewall in the enterprise. I also am very into all things leadership related, especially as it pertains to small business and agency owners, since I’ve owned my own shop called Airfoil for 11 years now.
I am Co-CEO and founder of Airfoil. Airfoil is an integrated marketing communications firm that specializes in PR. We primarily serve technology businesses. I direct the agency’s international business strategy, the expansion of our services portfolio and the extension of Airfoil’s traditional and digital marketing communications capabilities for new and current clients. I very excited to be fostering global new-business and partner opportunities for the firm. I also established Airfoil’s Silicon Valley office and lived in Silicon Valley for three years.
I specialize in analyst relations, issues management, national media campaign strategy and communications targeted to customers and marketing-channel partners for such clients as Microsoft, eBay and PayPal.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in organizational communication and a Master of Arts degree in communication from Eastern Michigan University. I am accredited in public relations (APR) by the Public Relations Society of America. I also sit on the boards for several industry associations like The Council of PR Firms.
