Tell us a little about you.

I have 30 years of experience in public relations, marketing and advertising and now enjoying the best work experience of my life as a consultant with Rhudy & Co. I work from home and have all of the interesting and challenging work I could ever want. I’m constantly solving problems. I have two grown girls and live in the city with the love of my life and our yellow lab.

Any career advice you would give?

Never lose touch with good contacts. Collect business cards, get LinkedIn, be friends on Facebook and stay in touch!

Which talent would you most like to have?

What a great question! I am a people pleaser and just wish I could figure out the right thing to do to make everyone happy — my Mom, my kids, my clients, my friends, etc.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Richmond in spring and fall, the river in the summer and Florida in winter. And I do!

What book are you reading?

Wilbur Smith’s Assegai but also Donna Highfill’s Real People, Real Change

What would people be surprised to learn about you?

I can still walk on my hands!

Why is your affiliate and NFPW important to you?

You know, I placed a lot more emphasis and importance on Virginia Professional Communicators and NFPW when I was president of the Virginia affiliate. I think I will get more involved again, but I’ve been focusing a great deal of my “free time” on raising money for blood cancer research for the Leukemia & Lyphoma Society.
