I am the Founder, of Connecting Reporters to Experts.com, a media, marketing and promotional platform for reporters and experts. My team helps our experts get connected to reporters and assist reporters to get connected to experts. We help reporters meet deadlines by providing exceptional, experienced and knowledgeable sources.
I’ve worked in the corporate world for the last 18 years, and I’ve owned my own book publishing and marketing business. My work has mostly been inside of smaller companies that work with larger companies, including many of the Fortune 500.
My roles have spanned corporate communications, marketing, sales, professional services, and social media strategy. I am known to my friends as a connector – always connecting up people to each other. When a friend recently suggested that I help small businesses connect to my contacts in the media, a lightbulb went off in my head – ever the consummate entrepreneur, I saw an opportunity to do what I love and that was help people to grow their business, at the same time helping reporters to connect to exceptional sources.
Why I Do What I Do
The web has amazing potential to bring magic together
Not just to market to people. Not just to sell stuff. Not just to publish things. But to connect individuals - without the limitations of geography or synchronous circumstance.
Opening the doors of communication between reporters and experts is a passion of mine – the potential, the possibilities, it’s all out there. The ability to promote experts and to share their passion and their expertise with reporters from all over the world is incredible.
