She started her career in book publishing at Penguin Putnam as a marketing assistant for Ivan Held, the VP/Associate Publisher and Marketing Director for the Viking imprint of Penguin and who is now the President of Putnam, Dutton, and Berkley. As her first boss, he provided her with valuable lessons about the drive, creativity and passion that it takes to succeed in the media industry.

In 2000, she provided exclusive content for a weekly *NSYNC newsletter for subscribers by interviewing *NSYNC members and management in order to support the *NSYNC@MSN service, a deal supported by Musicvision between Microsoft and *NSYNC.
In the autumn of 2016, I appeared in the new UFT (United Federation of Teachers) television advertisement that celebrated the dedication of teachers in our New York City public school system! With the backdrop of negative ads and disconcerting news, it was great to be a part of a positive message!
- The ad highlighted the passion and dedication of New York City public school teachers.
- The 30-second spot -- Rock Steady -- ran from September 23rd to October 7th on broadcast stations and cable television networks in the New York City area.
- In addition to the presidential debate, it appeared on Morning Joe, Hardball, the Today Show, Good Morning America, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Mets and Yankees games, The Voice and other widely watched programs.
