I thought I wanted to be a lawyer when I grew up - turns out I just liked to argue! When I learned publicity was a job I couldn't believe it - to be forever a student of life, to read beautiful stories, meet incredible people, learn from storytellers all around the world, and share these stories with as many people as I could. It was a dream come true.


I have been a book publicist and communications specialist for over 15 years. I didn’t really mean to, but turns out I specialize in non-fiction self-help books including lifestyle, business, health & wellness, spirituality, psychology, and general interest topics.

I’ve launched over a 1000 national book campaigns, many of them as the Senior Publicist at Hay House, including many New York Times Best Selling books with legendary authors like as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Immaculee Ilibagiza, and Anita Moorjani.

While I thought my Economics and Political Science degree would lead me into politics, I ultimately chose to put my writing and communications skills to use working with people who are trying to make a positive impact on the world through the power of books. I pride myself on getting to the heart of a story and crafting the most effective message to share it with the world.

Over the years, I’ve developed relationships with some of the top media outlets in the country, including Oprah’s OWN network, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, CNN, Dr. Oz, Hallmark Home & Family, The New York Times, FORBES, Spirituality & Health, Yoga Journal, Maria Shriver Media, and hundreds more. ​

When I'm not spending hours online and on the phone, I'm spending as much time in the beautiful outdoors of the northern coast of San Diego with my husband, Lee, our two teenagers, two dogs, and a bunny.
