I joined the AMS team in 1986, 3 years into the company’s inception, despite people telling me they'd never make it. Although AMS was still in its infancy, I believed so passionately in organizations we represent and was confident that I could help carve the future of AMS.

Three decades later and here we are — thriving.

My primary focus was on the financial operations of the company, where my contributions led to the fiscal health and stability of our growing organization.  As CEO, my position has expanded to include the strategic vision of the company and broadened areas of development in an ever-changing environment.

My career with Artsmarketing is rewarding on so many levels. Our people are at the epicentre of everything we do. I am proud to be surrounded by such a talented team who are passionate about the causes we support and are committed to make the world a better place. Our company philosophy has provided me the ability to utilize my skills, develop new areas of expertise and stretch myself and our team into new areas of personal and professional growth. Every day is a new learning experience!

My most rewarding personal accomplishment is raising my two sons with my husband Larry, to be compassionate, independent young men.


My Motto:

“Everyone makes mistakes, just try and not make the same one twice.”
