I oversee the global marketing strategy and its execution.
I hold a certificate in Executive Leadership from the University of Oxford. I began my professional journey in journalism and certified grant writing for non-profit organizations. In 1996, I had the privilege of founding the Kodiak Summer Science and Salmon Camp in Alaska — an environmental camp for youth that has continued to flourish under the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service for 28 years. Throughout my marketing career, I've had the opportunity to contribute to various aspects of marketing, from crafting and selling TV and radio commercials to overseeing digital and print publications. I've been fortunate to hold many writing and editing roles ranging from feature writer and associate editor to managing editor of 17 publications. With 29 years of marketing in North America and Europe, I bring a wealth of experience to Labosport International. For the last 5 years, I've been a creative and marketing judge for The Stevie® Awards, which recognizes excellence in marketing. I am a member of the the National Union of Journalists and the Native American Journalists Association and hold certifications for Nutritional Advisor and Mental Health First Responder. Beyond my professional endeavors, I contribute to volunteer work, serving on the boards of food banks and participating in youth literacy programs. My commitment to making a positive impact extends beyond the corporate realm, as I genuinely value contributing to the well-being of our communities.

As a hobby, I am a playwright, novelist and songwriter. I enjoy gardening, being in Nature, architectural photography, collecting rare and vintage history books (especially Scottish history), maintaining my own sourdough yeast and culturing my own mesophilic and thermophilic yogurts.
