More About PR Mama
This is my personal blog. I’m unsponsored, less uncensored than I’d prefer and fairly uninfluential. But I love to write, and blogging has roused a passion that’s lain dormant since I was a kid and winning Cricket magazine awards all over the place (if you were born after 1975, you’ll have no idea what I’m talking about.)
I’ve been a PR practitioner for 20 years, a wife for 10 and a mom for 6. My day job: president of DeVries Public Relations, a leading consumer PR agency. My 24/7 job: wife and mom. I work in Manhattan and live in northern New Jersey. I am married to a Russian ballroom dancer who is now a full-time stay-at-home dad. He is very handsome and an excellent date to have at wedding receptions. He also has a wonderful accent, cooks like a babushka and after a twelve years in this country still mangles the English language on a regular basis.
I write about personal and professional stuff, what inspires and influences me. I write about being married to a Russian, being the mother of a gorgeous and unruly son, of loving my job and sometimes hating my job. I often take side trips into ’70s and ’80s nostalgia that will bore and alienate half of you reading this. Often my writing alarms my boss, but then again he startles easily.
Oh, and this is the part my company’s legal department would like me to share: “The postings on this site are my own thoughts and opinions and do not necessarily represent the positions, strategies or opinions of The Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc, or their clients.”
