Director of Membership


Bucket List:
My bucket list includes traveling to Ireland and Germany, revisiting Paris (speaking French), and traveling to the western part of the U.S. with my husband. I also hope to finally make time to write my children’s book and to work with rescue animals.

Name a person with whom you most would want to have dinner:
Of course it would be a family reunion of my family members who are no longer here. I would also invite Lester Holt, Paul McCartney, and Coco Channel!

My first job was as a sales person in cosmetics at a department store in Buffalo, NY where it gave me the taste of persuasion and sales. I have spent my past sales life in radio, cable, and print sales as well as in sales management. I focused on building a foundation of solid relationships, creating value and relevance in the changing world of media all focusing on new business development.

My Life at AALU:
At AALU I utilize my sales background to maintain and build a sales pipeline that delivers members to AALU. I also maintain and build relationships with our current member base.  In working closely with the rest of the AALU team, we will build a stronger base of new members and deliver to the membership professional development tools that will help them grow and excel in their business.
