Go Red For Women Luncheon!

I have been meaning to get this posted but I have been feeling the sand tightening around my head as my arms flail trying to get out. I am so grateful for all the excellent press I have gotten recently such as this week's Burlington Free Press, but I must apologize to those great folks contacting me for appointments as it's busy season in PR and I must focus on my current clients and their deadline oriented projects. Thanks all for understanding!!!


In the meantime, I thought I would shift the focus to some other fabulous women business owners, specifically those who sat at the table I sponsored at the Go Red For Women Luncheon to benefit the American Heart Association and to raise awareness on heart disease and stroke in women.

I'd like to give some shout outs to:

Kathy Blume, the fabulous Vermont actress and proprietor of Might Ruckus - an entertainment company that keeps Kathy performing across the country both on the stage and at conferences with her feisty political commentary. www.kathrynblume.com

Starr Jewell, a long time co-worker and friend from the agency world and current collaborator on marketing work for clients. Starr now owns and operates Starr Jewell Marketing Services and handles the whole kit-n-kaboodle. www.starrjewell.com

Markey Read, an entrepreneur guru as well as avid urban homesteader, Markey owns Career Networks - a career and development center (great option if you are looking at your "Plan B" in the economic drama). Markey has also recently instituted a series of "urban homesteading" events which I attended one of this weekend. www.careernetworksvt.com

Kim Reynolds, and excellent writer and editor of Woodstock Magazine, part of Vermont's Mountain View Publishing group. Kim publishes the lovely magazine depicting the lovely Woodstock, Vermont, the location of my first large travel PR account and her editorial standards are most admirable. www.mountainviewpublishing.biz

Not able to attend due to sickness and schedules, but still table members and supporters of the Go Red For Women Luncheon were:

Diana Jones, owner of bookkeeping and tax service firm, Double Entry Bookkeeping - www.doubleentrybookkeeping.net

Stephanie Raccine, co-owner of website design firm, Off the Page Creations - www.offthepagecreations.com

Also in attendance was my amazing mother, a school district superintendent (not in VT) and the loving force behind so much of my success. I love you Mom!!!


Thanks ladies and enjoy the pictures!
