As an author, speaker, marketer, brand and customer experience evangelist, educator, and consultant, I love to engage, entertain, and motivate audiences with stories and lessons gleaned from my diverse career as a singer, educator, television show host, and marketing executive. (I'm still not sure what I want to be when I grow up.) My presentations focus on topics related to Marketing, Branding, and Customer Experience.
Originally from Canada, I've worked with celebrity spokespeople; produced television and radio spots; served as a spokesperson in national media; and stewarded relationships with Fortune 500 corporate partners such as Nike, Ford, and Aventis (Sanofi). I've written, produced, and developed materials on ad agency contract for major corporate clients such as Kraft, Procter & Gamble, Nestlé Carnation, and Warner-Lambert. I have been a contributing writer for The Business Journal and MarketingProfs, and contribute to SmallBizClub (founded by NFL Hall of Famer and author, Fran Tarkenton), and Business2Community People in over 100 countries have read my blog, Totally Uncorked on Marketing, and my articles have appeared in many print and digital publications. I'm also president and CMO of Solutions Marketing & Consulting LLC located in Scottsdale, Arizona.

In my “real life,” I play tennis, swim, follow a plant-based diet, and cuddle with my dog, Mitzy. My husband, Allen, and I became U.S. citizens in 2014.
