Museum at Andersonville, GA and then moved into production work on high-end commercials and national television series.  In addition, she was a legacy advisor for former Georgia Gov. Zell Miller and worked for national and statewide political ad campaigns.  Following her career in film and television, s moved into the political and social advocacy field.  There she has served as executive director for the League of Women Voters of Georgia and communications director for the Southern States Energy Board (an economic development organization composed of governors and legislators from 16 southern states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands).  She currently serves as the advocacy director for Voices for Georgia’s Children, an organization that supports the implementation of health, justice, welfare and education policies beneficial to children.  She lives in Atlanta with her children, Skye and Zane.
