I have been a journalist for major daily newspapers and a full-service public relations and marketing practitioner for public and private companies at full-service public relations, advertising and marketing agencies in New York, Philadelphia and South Florida for over 40 years. During that time my work has been recognized by national marketing associations. For the past ten years I have been concentrating on public relations and marketing services for nonprofit companies including the largest nonprofit clinic in Florida, nonprofit and university hospitals and large medical practices.
I began my career as a journalist at a Pulitzer Prize daily newspaper covering national, state and local politics and government issues.
My public relations work for clients has been published in virtually every major daily newspaper, magazine and business publication, aired on all network TV and radio stations and seen on social media.
I am the former Director of Communications and Marketing for the world's largest hotel company, franchising eight hotel brands comprising nearly 6,000 properties and more than 520,000 rooms. Other divisions under my supervision included a resort management company and the second largest US auto rental company. My responsibilities included public relations, marketing communications, media relations, new brand launched, promotions, franchise sales support, and crisis communications. During a six-year span I directed the grand openings or repositioning of over 300 hotels and numerous restaurants.
