Fate nudged me in the direction of entertainment early on when I was offered an intern position at a Miami television station at the age of 15. After working there for two years during high school, I left for Dartmouth College, graduating with a degree in English and a desire to produce TV and movies. So, I set out for Hollywood a la Kermit the Frog (“Big time show biz! It’s always been my dream!”).
After working on numerous television commercials, including a couple years at Ridley Scott's company, I segued to telling stories longer than thirty seconds in feature film development at Warner Bros., Sony and Touchstone Studios. Later, I returned to my TV roots, producing and writing shows including "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern," "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives," "America's Next Top Model," "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "Single in the City," and "The Adam Carolla Project."
After spending more than half my life working (and dating) in Hollywood, now I'm writing books and coaching women through relationship quandaries of their own.
Home base is Los Angeles, California, where I reside with my husband, daughter and Chihuahua.
