Suzie’s background in journalism and love for news and current events led her to become a media relations rock star securing client articles in top tier print, broadcast and online outletsShe is savvy in traditional and new media staying on top of the latest trends and opportunities. She was also a co-moderator for #TweenPR, a weekly Twitter chat focusing on mid-SR level PR professionals that for the moment is on hiatus.

Suzie loves people and isn’t a fan of writing in the third person. So I’m going the casual route now. Almost a year ago I moved to Arizona following being laid off from a small business in Virgina. I’m discovering a wonderful wine industry in this state and also working for a great public relations agency.  I stumbled into the wine industry three years ago and rediscovered how much I really love wine and all the nitty-gritty details that go with it.  I was a wine consultant for Total Wine working with individuals and businesses on wine selections for a variety of occasions. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting winemakers from across the world and tasting their wines. I also got to know many of the wonderful wineries in Virginia and look forward to returning and visiting all of them.

I’m a native Californian but have spent most of my life in Colorado and New York. I’m a runner, skier, foodie, traveler, entertainer, wine enthusiast, fashionista, social butterfly and night owl. I love to cook, play with my mini-schnauzer Baxter, spend time with my family and friends, write and I live to be outside. Following a hamstring injury,  I’m back to training for my second marathon where the goal is to qualify for Boston. I love a good challenge and I have endless curiosity when it comes to life. I read everything I can get my hands on.
