About me

Introduction I live in verdant Lake Oswego, Oregon with my teacher husband and teen-age daughter. We have a Portuguese Water Dog. My work is in public relations and I have worked with clients in a diverse set of industries, including high tech, food, graphic design and brand strategy. Right now I am trying to identify a new paradigm for working in my field, since so much in the world of media and communications has changed, mostly for the better in my opinion, but which requires a major readjustment.
