I am an award-winning writer and independent journalist. I cover issues relevant to women, families, life and the workplace. My work has been published in a variety of venues including The New York Times, Newsweek, Salon, NPR, Forbes.com, MSNBC, Mothering Magazine, and others. Before launching my writing career, I spent nearly twenty years working in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. I was a Brand Manager at Nestle Corporation and a Vice President at Foote, Cone, Belding advertising agency. As President of Durham Marketing Group, I worked with high technology start-ups on their strategic business and marketing plans. As a social entrepreneur, I founded Supporting Our Sons in partnership with Dr. William Pollack, a nationally recognized expert on boys. These days, when I'm not writing or advocating for gender equality, I continue to consult with small companies and early stage start-ups on business and marketing strategy. I'm a lover of books - you know the kind that actually have paper and aren't backlit. I am also passionate about JAWS!
