Success stories…

I’ve spent my career creating them for companies large and small. In 2012, I left a successful 25-year career in corporate PR and marketing to create my own success story… to run my own business.

When I decided to acquire City Publications Richmond in Spring 2013, I had two simple goals –

  1. Showcase Richmond’s Finest companies to contribute to their growth and success.

  2. Give back to a community that’s been my home for more than 50 years.

After spending 25 years as a corporate PR executive, leading global communications and marketing programs for Fortune 500 companies like Pfizer, Wyeth and Honeywell, I made a career change that shifted my focus to Richmond’s vibrant business culture and people. I started Richmond’s Finest!

As a national media company, City Publications offered me the best opportunity to achieve my goals – to bring together the finest Richmond companies and the most-deserving community organizations in a business and community showcase. With operations in more than 50 major U.S. cities, City Publications specializes in reaching targeted, mid and high-income populations with a fusion of print and digital media campaigns. Its quality and reputation are second to none.

Having worked in diverse industries, such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, technology, and manufacturing, I bring a broad perspective on marketing, advertising and community advocacy to each of my clients. Some of America’s biggest companies entrusted me to grow their multimillion-dollar brands. Now I enjoy earning the same trust and respect from Richmond business owners and community leaders who continue to use Richmond’s Finest to grow their business or advance their cause.

I hope to earn your trust as well.
