Who I am and what I do for fun

I am president of Net Results, a project management firm specializing in marketing communications. I love working with creative people to produce compelling marketing materials. Oh, and I also have a genetic compulsion to keep things organized. So combining those interests led me to offer project management services for marketing programs, including websites. For even more fun, I spend my time laughing and talking with friends and family, enjoying the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area with all its glorious cultural diversity and natural beauty, and keeping the economy going by buying shoes. I also have a secret identity -- as a belly dancer!

What I do for Ewert Communications

I am the liaison between the client and the Ewert web development team. I work with clients to develop the strategy to create or revise their websites. I translate what the client wants and needs into an action plan that the web developer can use as the blueprint for development. Then I keep it all -- the development, production, and review cycles -- on schedule and the project within budget. 

What I like about working with Ewert Communications

Oh, my goodness, where do I start? It is such a fun group of people and they work with very interesting clients. The work is challenging and rewarding. What else could I want? 

My background and experience

Using my almost 20 years of marketing communications know-how and my MBA in Marketing, I manage the development and production of a variety of global marketing and product launch programs, implement corporate branding initiatives across all levels of marketing touch points, and create streamlined and cost-saving project processes using industry best practices.

I've managed the strategic and creative process to plan, produce, and deliver integrated marketing campaigns, including branding initiatives, product launches, web site creation, e-marketing and online programs, and interactive tools, for such major companies such as Cisco, Informatica, NETGEAR, and Seagate. I've ensured that the deliverables meet the program business objectives, worked with team members to produce consistent strategic messaging, and coordinated the workflow, approval processes, schedules, and budgets.
