I'm a PR/marketing and social media professional, writer and swim Mom. Though born and raised in the good old US of A, I've been married to a Swede for more than 25 years and therefore, have developed a love of green marzipan frosting and best of all - HOCKEY! I've spent the past 25 years developing successful communications and marketing programs for technology companies, primarily in the wireless networking and mobile space, and while this day job pays the bills and has resulted in a love of all things tech, my real passions are writing, literature, music and of course, HOCKEY. I was also a fitness instructor for 20 years and if my poor, aging hips and back had cooperated, I might still be barking orders from a step or spin bike. Instead, I placate myself with weekly pilates sessions, taking long walks, and yelling at HOCKEY from my couch. I'm a fan of college sports (UCLA and anyone playing USC), competitive swimming, the two-time Stanley Cup winning, Los Angeles Kings, Dave Matthews Band concerts and good wine. Did I mention HOCKEY?!
