THE PRESENT

IG Live party!  

 

The book launched April 6! We celebrated by hosting an Instagram Live virtual party on 4/9, which then inspired an online Spare Room gathering. The first one is planned for 4/23, World Book Day!

 

 

I launched this site in the midst of my “professional halftime,” in Fall 2019. After 20+ years in the corporate world, I took time off to pursue a passion project (writing a book!) and spend time with my family. Who knew COVID-19 would happen and gift us with more quality time than we could ever have imagined!

 

Then, in July, 2020, I also started a new role as CEO for McCann Worldgroup, China.

This job sits at the intersection of all my passion areas:

 

HEAD: Designing and building branded OMO HX, online-meets-offline human experiences.

HEART: Supporting creative, intelligent and passionate people to do what they love to do.

SOUL: Working for an organization that puts creativity and purpose at the center of all they do.

I’m loving this company, my team, our clients and the job!
