What is your role with the podcast team, how long have you been involved, and how did you get started?

A couple of years back when I joined NYWIFT I wanted to be a part of the communications committee to be a helping hand in any way that I can. After joining, I learned more about the podcast and wanted to get involved, and the rest is history. Best decision ever! I am one of the co-hosts and a proud member of the New York Women in Film & Television Women Crush Wednesdays Podcast Team.

What do you enjoy most about the podcast and how has this journey been for you?

I love and enjoy helping to lock in interviews, I love and enjoy interviewing guests, I love and enjoy the brainstorming process, and I love and enjoy the presence and working with each and every one on the team. 

This journey has been so fun and I am excited for each show. Being on the podcast team has elevated my media career in so many ways and provided me with so many opportunities that I am so grateful for.

What would you like to see more of this year?

I would love to see even more people become aware of our podcast, which I am confident about because the buzz is growing right now. I would like to also see more behind-the-scenes guests make appearances on the podcast in addition to the big names that come on such as set designers, grips, production assistants, script supervisors, background actors, and more.

For anyone who may want to join the podcast team, what would you like to say to them?

We would love to have you a part of the team. We’ve become a family that you too will enjoy being a part of as well. We would be pleased to have your talent, ideas, and presence on this journey with us. We look forward to hearing from you. 


What would you like to say to the team members and the listeners?

It’s been an honor to work with such a talented, dedicated, and supportive group of women that understand the importance of thriving for excellence and what it takes to work as a team. 

To the listeners, please keep listening, sharing, suggesting, and supporting. Your support for us is dearly appreciated and we thank you for listening to each and every episode. 


What else are you working on outside of the podcast?

As the owner of Visionary Minds Public Relations and Media, I work tirelessly to assist my clients with obtaining media coverage for their brands, events, and services. 

As a multimedia media professional and celebrity interviewer, I also cover a lot of the hottest tv series, films, press junkets, talent, events, and more.
