ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS:
We specialize in Broadcast and Digital marketing. Enjoy working with everyone from Mom and Pops to Corporate America – anyone who wants ideas that will make their business grow. After doing this for over 28 years my biggest thrill still comes from my customer’s success.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TIBA?
I was invited many years ago by Tara Dimick. I tell people she is who I want to be when I grow up, so I figured if she recommends it, it must be amazing. And 9 years later I still look forward to each meeting. I’ve enjoyed serving on the board and even serving as President. By far the best way to meet similar minded business people and network.
