1. What is some advice you can offer women looking to re-enter the workforce, and how can they prepare to make themselves stand out?

Social Media plays a big role in all business sectors- familiarize yourself with it – don’t be intimidated by it and become friends!

2. What do you love most about the communications industry, and what is it that made you want to pursue it as a career?

The communications industry can touch so many different people in so many different ways. I wanted to pursue it because I didn’t see very many people that looked like me on television or in film or in magazines and I wanted to make a change – make a difference.

3. What has been the greatest influence throughout your life, and how has this influenced you?

My family – they are the reason why I do what I do and make the decisions that I make – I’m lucky to have my husband’s support as well as the rest of my family’s. They make me want to be the best I can be.

4. Is there a particular book or film you’ve recently read or seen that has made an impression on you? Why?

It was an interview for a piece I just did yesterday where the interviewee said that we have more years behind us than we do in front of us – so let’s make the years we have left count.
