I am a visionary, a big picture person who thrives on forging relationships with organizations and individuals. I am a strategic thinker with a growth mindset, I am the person who sees the glass half full, the one with an entrepreneurial spirit and I enjoy being a part of something bigger than myself.
After an accomplished career in the NYC fashion industry as a european textile sales professional, working with major women’s apparel manufacturer leaders, I landed in upstate NY to start a life with my best friend, inspirational human being and educational leader, my husband. I started in a new direction as the marketing lead for a commercial real estate company and then later as an advertising consultant for a local lifestyle publication. From there I went on to create, launch and build a publication that targets the 55+ demographic. My role as VP of Sales & Marketing evolved into overseeing all marketing, sales & editorial responsibilities for the publication.
After being introduced to the brainchild of MVP Parent I instantly felt a connection and wanted to be a part of moving it forward. I see MVP Parent as an exciting opportunity that will help breakdown the wedge between parents of youth athletes and the game itself, allowing us to keep our kids in the game. Knowledge is power and what better way to engage parents with content that matters and that resonates. As a mom to a young athletic boy who loves the game of soccer and a husband that currently holds the President position for our local travel & recreational soccer club, I have witnessed parents behaving badly on the sidelines, I have seen the effects that a poor diet & lack of sleep can have on a young athlete and how using the correct protective gear can help prevent unnecessary injuries.
I bring to MVP Parent over 20 years of business development experience and 10 years of experience in the publishing industry. My role as Business Development Director will include working collaboratively to find ways to align the MVP Parent with youth sports industry leaders, associations & advertisers. I will work at creating synergistic partnerships to better the lives of current & future athletes, to give kids the opportunity to bring out and build skills that youth sports offer, but more importantly to help build confidence and character to help make them better human beings, future innovators and leaders.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and my young labrador retriever, Lola. I love all kinds of music and have a secret crush on Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam. I enjoy traveling to new places and visit the ocean any chance I can. I take pride in following a healthy lifestyle, cooking, trying new wines and staying active.
