About Virginia

Twirling around the Greek Theatre stage in “Alice in Wonderland” at 13 yrs., I knew I loved to perform. What I know now, I was feeling the “WOW” of doing something new.

My insatiable hunger grew for exploring different lifestyles and life. Graduating from Northwestern Univ. in the 60’s, I was lured by flowered headdresses and San Francisco’s free spirits. Far from my mainstream upbringing, I flourished with few strings attached. But I had to eat and pay rent.  I found a trail blazing advertising boutique and learned the art of product persuasion. My marketing instincts and writing muse were unleashed. Who knew working was so fun?

On the other side of the country, friends were raising children in a polar opposite life. “It’s time to get a real job,” they urged. I moved back East and joined an international ad agency and later the Hail Mother of hamburgers, the Golden Arches. Hard ball work and soaring socially in New York, Chicago and Boston? Lucky me!. (Acting experience comes in handy fitting into a corporate culture!)

I’ve had my share of heartbreaks and challenges. I’ve learned to heal with humor, honor my uniqueness and keep skipping along my yellow brick road sharing stories along the way.

Huge support of friends and unconditional love from my artistic high-tech husband makes my eclectic life possible.  My glass isn’t full, it’s overflowing. I’m retired, rewired and unleashed.  Chasing new “WOWs” in my life.
