ESPN Press Room
Behind The Scenes
After a 25-year stint in the great Garden State, I ventured to Connecticut in 2016 to join the communications department at ESPN. As a senior publicist on the college sports team, I support all sports across the board, with a primary focus on college basketball (men’s and women’s) and lacrosse. My job has taken me across the country and back, including multiple College GameDay stops, men’s and women’s Final Fours, and a whole lot of fun (and miles). I am a proud graduate of Seton Hall University.
