With a passion for sports and entertainment, she has helped craft successful messages and strategies for major initiatives such as the Bottom Line Sports Show with Penny Hardaway and Charles Oakley, Ray’s Summer Days, Super Bowl XXXIX, McDonald’s All-American Basketball Game, and the Arts & Athletics Celebrity Golf Classic. As a result of dedication and hard work, her clients have received coverage in major publications including the New York Times, SLAM Magazine, Washington Post, Sirius XM, and many more.
