About Me

My Experience

I am a results-oriented communicator with experience providing expert commentary both in print, online and on air.  As a journalist, I bring a visual approach to storytelling that appeals across mediums.  In addition, my more than 20 years of successful work in public relations and brand marketing communications positions me to speak on a variety of newsworthy and relevant topics.

My Skillset

I possess a sharp eye for detail, which I use to find even the smallest errors in my work. I work well under pressure and can produce high-quality content and commentary in short periods of time. I have strong interpersonal skills and work with a wide variety of people.

My Goals

Commentary is an opportunity to inform, educate and/or inspire.  I love the art of conversation and have solid experience serving as an in-studio guest, talking about current headlines or topics of broad media/public interest. Storytelling -- for me -- is a gift, including producing and placing opinion editorials.  My award-winning journalism and brand strategy skills have been recognized by PR News, Bulldog Reporter, Atlanta Association of Black Journalists, Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) -- both national and Georgia Chapter.
