I’m a seasoned communications pro who started my career as a print journalist for several newspapers in New York and Connecticut. I covered everything from the police blotter to the City Council and school board, and eventually found my gift in feature writing. I was an assistant city editor and Sunday editor, managed the features department, was a business editor, and oversaw the layout and design of the paper’s sections. When I tired of working nights, weekends and holidays at daily newspapers, I left the field for a career in public relations, working for a large real estate company on the east coast. In 1990, I launched Griffin Communications, a full-service writing, public relations and communications agency, with two local non-profit clients. When I called my local hospital on a lark to see if they needed any freelance PR help, they said “Yes,” and so began a specialty in healthcare communications. Over the years, I have built a successful business and developed expertise in corporate, healthcare, non-profit and religion communications.
