Working as a business executive in the highly competitive world of New York City's commercial printing industry seems like another lifetime ago. In addition to sales I was responsible for the day-to-day coordination and management of the manufacture of marketing and promotional materials for a diverse group of well-known book and magazine publishing companies, ad agencies, corporations, non-profit and educational institutions. I worked hand in hand with marketers and graphic designers in the creation, development and delivery of their message to prospective consumers.
But my other full time position, as single mom to my son Jake has been my true labor of love. Each and every day I realize the unlimited joy, learning and growth that a child brings to the world. My teenager inspires me daily with his innate sense of humor and his “old soul.”
Blending demanding yet rewarding personal and professional lives has been my work in progress. Having to juggle family activities and responsibilities with my professional life led to the concept of BusyBodyBook’s Weekly GRID and its debut in 2004. My deep regard for people, time, business and organization influenced every phase of BusyBodyBook’s development .
Originally from New York City, I have lived in South Orange, NJ since 1990. In 2003, as founder of About Your Time LLC and with the "birth" of BusyBodyBook I was finally fortunate to have realized my goal of working closer to home while Jake navigates young adulthood.
I will be forever grateful to my family and friends as well as so many professionals I have met along the way for their respect, guidance and support.
To the first, and now thousands of loyal BusyBodyBook customers - I thank each and everyone of you for encouraging and offering me your feedback and helping me create a better product. My goal and hope is that our products succeed in making your own and your family's lives easier and more rewarding.
