Mom to 2 awesome kids ages 11 and 14, wife to amazing Greek guy, very active community & school volunteer, VP of Global Comms/PR for Indiegogo. Previously ran PR at Pandora, Thumbtack, Discovery Digital Networks/Revision3 & Digg. Started out working in Hollywood in the Film & TV business - 1st job was at CAA in the TV Lit dept, then worked on the development & production side of things reading scripts & coming up with ideas for movies at WB, Sony/TriStar/Columbia. Later went on to do band publicity at Elektra Records in NYC before joining the tech PR world during the dot com boom, working for Jupiter Research & Connors Communications, & then moving back to California (the Northern part this time) in 2003 to join Shopping.com (later acquired by eBay). Throughout the years, I've been known to dabble in voice-over work https://www.youtube.com/user/AnimalEsteem/videos. I've got a BA in Psychology from the State University of NY at Albany. I'm a native NYer but a California girl at heart, living the dream near the beach in Pacifica, driving a bright orange jeep & a vintage yellow 1973 VW Thing. Have led my daughter's Girl Scout Troop for 10 years, founded a boys' adventure club for my son, now in its 7th year, organizer of the "Caring Kids" teenager community service group helping homeless in SF. PTO board member for 7 years. Co-chaired successful Measure D parcel tax for our school district, chaired the 8th grade graduation committee, and co-ran the after-school enrichment program for 2 years. Lover of seeing/hearing live music, world traveler (25 countries so far), 30 year strict vegetarian, outdoor dining enthusiast - especially while singing 70s era songs around a fire pit - nature junkie, hippie, beach-goer, overly-competitive board game and Pokemon Go player, Deadhead/Phish fan (close to 200 live shows each). Kauai, Tahoe, Yosemite, Italy, Greece, Culebra (PR), Big Sur, & our annual camping trips with our neighbors are my happy place destinations. Somehow became a California Valley Quail farmer (hatching & raising a dozen+ birds in our aviary for the past 5 years). In my spare time, I help spread the word about my husband's hand-made, Hawaiian-style surfboard business: https://www.facebook.com/pacificaboards/

One fine mornin', she puts on a New York station and she couldn't believe what she heard at all. She started dancin' to that fine-fine-fine-fine music, ooohhh, her life was saved by rock 'n' roll . -Lou Reed
