Professional Summary
I am a serial entrepreneur who has a knack for discovering niche markets.
In 20+ years, I have started and run three successful businesses that I sold. Currently, I operate two: CastMedic Designs and PR for Anyone®.
CastMedic Designs has the potential to change the entire medical industry by bringing fashion and fun to the healing process and making recovery more enjoyable.
PR for Anyone® came about from the media success I was able to generate from CastMedic Designs. It also helps to continue to spread the word about CastMedic because it is the 'story' behind PR for Anyone®.
Founder & CEO Jan 2014Present PR for Anyone® Gainesville, VA After launching CastMedic Designs, I had no resources remaining for PR, marketing or advertising. Realizing that I now had to educate the marketplace on this new product concept, I taught myself everything I could about gaining free publicity.
In less than a year, either me or my products appeared in over 50 media outlets including the Steve Harvey Show, Dr. Oz, local affiliates of NBC, FOX, CBS, and the CW as well as national and local publications, radio programs, and blogs.
The demand for this knowledge was tremendous so I launched PR for Anyone® to help other small business owners have similar success.
I am also the author of the best selling book, PR for Anyone 100+ Affordable Ways to Easily Create Buzz for Your Business which launched June 1, 2014 and is available in all major bookstores.
President Sep 2010Present CastMedic Designs Gainesville, VA In the Summer of 2010, a freak accident left me with a broken foot and an orthopedic surgeon prescribing an awful, large, clunky walking medical device. It was the day before a scheduled trip to New York City, Fashion Capital of the World. I searched in vain for a product to make the boot fashionable.
With nothing available, and market research indicating close to 4 million people a year (in the U.S. alone) placed in medical boots, I went forward with the design and manufacturing of accessories for medical boots.
The product launched in February, 2012. 
Co-Owner Sep 2001Jul 2009 Details for the Home Haymarket, VA I was co-owner of a retail boutique featuring top retail lines including, Vera Bradley, Brighton, and Pandora. The store was extremely successful despite being located in a remote location with no other retail in the area and during the worst economic downturn because we believed in stellar customer service.
My partner bought me out in 2009 and the store is still in existence today and remains a success.
Proprietor Jan 1998Sep 2001 Land Development Consultant Gainesville, VA Created a niche market of providing feasibility studies for the fast-growing market of data centers.
Worked regularly with America Online and handled all of their projects as well as other technology companies in the Washington, D.C. area.
Partner Jul 1991Jan 1998 Shack Events Reston, VA Co-owned the company with two other partners. We organized large-scale events and concerts in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area for twenty-something singles.
This was pre-internet and pre-email and Shack Events was similar to a modern day
