There is no other higher privilege than being a journalist. I’ve spent my entire 39-year career in media, including newspapers, magazines, direct mail and digital products. Owning a small local media company is extremely rewarding because the businesses we help succeed and the content we provide is what our customers depend on. When not handling business tasks I’m a golf addict, water skier, Central Michigan University fan and obsess about having perfectly straight lines on my lawn. Weird. Raising four great sons has made me a bit crazy, but blessed.

As editor of Oakland Lakefront Lifestyles and ​The Spinal Column Newsweekly since January 2013, I oversee all stories, planning, and assignments for both print and digital formats. I’m a proud graduate of Oakland University, majoring in journalism. Being a lifelong resident of Oakland County is beneficial to know about many aspects of the communities and markets served by our publications. I love writing and informing our growing audience about the people, events, and businesses in our distribution area.

 

 

 

 

Advertising Coordinator
Most likely when calling our office, I’m the first person you’ll speak to. It is a pleasure to assist our advertising customers and readers with all aspects of their needs. Although my role includes everything the boss throws my way, I coordinate and handle all customer billings, classified advertising, municipality public notice ads, many realtors and a myriad of individual business customers. Want to know something, just ask. In my spare time in my mom role (does any mom have spare time), my world revolves around my twin daughters and young son. Hanging out with friends, enjoying wine, the beach and being a band and youth football parent are just a few of the many things that I enjoy.

I’m a lifelong Commerce/Milford resident with roots dating back to the 1920s. Lakefront Lifestyles magazine has been around for 26 years and is a favorite read of lakefront homeowners throughout Oakland County. So very proud to have two grown children and six grandchildren, one of which plays for the Broncos at Western Michigan University. I used to sing in the Milford Choir, and am known as the “Zumba Queen” for dancing is my favorite form of exercise. Outdoors is where I like to be, as a once avid hunter, I still enjoy nature and hiking.
