I was born and raised in NJ, and was a Jersey Girl all my life before heading to the Mid-West for College. I graduated from Indiana University, where I also met my husband Scott, with a double major in Marketing and Communications.
After IU I moved to New York City and started my career in Advertising and Marketing at BBDO Worldwide working on launching the Gillette Venus brand globally and soon after working on AOL, and Campbells Soups account, then UBS financial services before heading to Boston where I was VP and Account Director at Gearon Hoffman Advertising. While working with all local Institutions, Children's Museums, Health Care, and Children's Retailers and brands alike on their marketing campaigns, I absolutely fell in LOVE with Boston, the city and the people and became totally immersed in the Boston Market. It quickly became my home.
My twins Skylar and Cameron, now 4 1/2, were born and we headed to the suburbs, and I took time away from the Advertising world to raise my family and I was 100% 24/7 Mommy, But there was not a baby class, baby store, baby event, moms group, moms blog or product I did not try or learn about and then share with the rest of my mommy friends and new world! When Bryce was born, my now 21 month old, there was a whole different WORLD of baby to explore -- and so much easier doing it with one baby -- not two!
I love volunteering my time when able, and am involved with my children's pre-school and am a Community Building Co-Chair for our Young Jewish Families organization in our community. I also work closely on the Lenny Zakim Fund Charity which is an organization that allows community businesses to flourish and I help plan their events, and also work with the Boston Childrens Hospital on their annual Gala.
There is not a workout or activity I won't try, I love Pure Barre Class and Pilates and Running - my newest challenge is to finish a Spartan Race! It is not a full day if I have not done a workout to keep me energized and active for my kids - sometimes my kids even help me with my workouts! I also love to cook and create healthy recipes - I have the best little chefs helpers in the kitchen!
I always wanted to get back to the marketing world and what better way than to do it with a company that focuses on what every mom loves most - their kids!
I am so excited to launch Big City Moms in Boston and show Beantown all we have to offer our moms and moms to be!
