I began my professional career as a freelance writer, editor, and photographer. I received a degree in Editing and Publishing (the Scholarly Publishing Certificate) through the Graduate Public History Program at Arizona State University in 1988. While I was in grad school, I was the managing editor of two academic journals: Aging & Human Development and Omega: Journal of Death and Dying.
After graduation, I founded Expression, a journal of creative writing, illustration, and photography. These were the days before the Internet and easy publicity, and yet I managed to distribute the magazine to forty bookstores in eight states, including the entire Border’s chain, which was just beginning to expand.
In 1997 I founded Angelique & Friends Entertainment, a company that connected entertainers with clients and promoted events. A&F was one of the very first entertainment agencies on the Internet, and as a growing number of people wanted to find and book entertainers on line, the business expanded quickly from local to regional to national. I designed the company website and handled all of the search engine marketing and optimization.
In order to promote my company and my entertainers, I utilized all the new digital methods of marketing, promoting, and branding. After I closed the agency in 2008, I became a social media expert, teaching classes, coaching business owners, and administering accounts. My #AskAngel Twitter chat was one of the largest and longest-running in the Twitterverse.
I spent several years helping to launch my husband’s managed IT and cybersecurity service, CMIT Solutions of Gilbert and Mesa, before returning to marketing communications. Clamshell Communications and CMIT of Gilbert and Mesa work together to provide a wide variety of services to our customers.
I’m involved in several business organizations, including Eliances (a community of entrepreneurs,) the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, and the Mesa Chamber of Commerce.
