I am a career nurse, manager and corporate educator turned journalist.
In nursing, my particular expertise was in the areas of critical care, pediatrics and post anesthesia care. I have worked for several large medical companies as a sales representative and educator. I won The Daisy Award, a national nursing excellence award, in 2011 and again in 2013.
I have been a business owner and entrepreneur in downtown, St Petersburg and a member of the Beach Drive and Downtown Business Association., for which I won The President’s award.
I have a long history of volunteerism and community service, including my current involvement with Community Foundation of Tampa Bay/The Plus Projec+ as a consultant for non profits. This is a grant funded role.
I have hosted “Beauty & The ‘Burg”, a webcast/podcast devoted to promoting the arts and culture in St Petersburg, FL. since 2014 with an audience of approximately 80,000 listeners per month.
Currently, I am the arts writer for St. Pete Life Magazine, a very high quality lifestyle publication.
I also am a contributor for duPont Registry Luxury Living Tampa Bay magazine and the Creative Pinellas Arts Coast Journal.
