With 20+ years of bi-coastal PR and marketing experience across the hospitality, arts and entertainment, retail and government industries, I am a holistic marketing strategist that cares as much as you do about your business. Working both in-house and at agencies during my career, I approach each client with an eye for helping them stand out from the crowd and market their best assets. I launched my own marketing & PR consulting agency in 2019 in NYC: TVI Communications, working with hospitality, environmental and wellness clients. I geek out on branding and helping companies figure out their corporate messaging for their target audiences.
Most recently as the Executive Director of Marketing for Michelin-starred Chef Daniel Boulud, I led all aspects of marketing and PR for the group’s 16 restaurants worldwide. Before moving to New York City in 2016, I spent 12 years in San Francisco, specializing in the hospitality industry for companies including Moana Restaurant Group and Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. Prior to joining Kimpton, I was the President and co-owner of Ellipses Public Relations—a boutique hospitality PR firm specializing in restaurants, travel, food and beverage.
I began my career in Washington, DC, working for public affairs clients such as the U.S. Treasury. I later moved into the entertainment PR world, serving the messaging needs of clients including the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, WETA Washington, DC (PBS producing station) and Disney on Ice and DisneyLive! before moving westward in 2004.
