She makes her living as a promotion and marketing editor and is, among other things, responsible for that Dateline promo involving 50-year-olds who want to hook up with your teenage daughter. She's got a one-eyed cat, a passport and a knack for physical injury. The stories write themselves. Also, she won an Emmy.
