What is your favorite PR/Marketing/Advertising campaign of all time?

Milton Bradley’s “World’s Messiest Dorm Room Contest” which supported their beloved game, Pass the Pigs. Students all over the country submitted entries with pictures of their rooms and an essay on why they should win (grand prize was a cleaning service). The campaign secured tremendous broadcast and print publicity and significant visibility for the brand.

What keeps your creative juices flowing?

Not much. They’re flowing from the moment I get into the shower until my head hits the pillow at 11:30. Sometimes they’re even flowing at 3 in the morning!

What is your biggest passion outside of work?

I love spending time with my husband, 20 year-old daughter and 18 year-old son, all of whom are “talkers.” Our quality time is the best. I’ve been a Barre exercise instructor for 12 years and still teach on the side, so I get continue getting my fix of making people have fun while working out hard.
