Tell us a little about yourself and your family
I have been married to a wonderful man, John, for 14 years. He’s a TERRIFIC cook and Dad to our adopted daugher, Kadence. Kady came home with us from China almost 3 years ago and is the love of our lives. She has 3 sets of grandparents and family across the country (New Mexico, Alaska, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Colorado…) who adore her.
Why do you like being a BzzAgent?
I love testing out the products! I’ve always been a “feedback” kind of person, happy to call a company and let them know a) their product is awesome or, b) there was an issue. Companies won’t know what we think unless they hear from us directly. BzzAgent is a great service for both companies AND consumers. I’ve raved about so many of the items I’ve tried that many of my friends are now loyal consumers.
What have been some of your favorite BzzCampaigns and why?
I’ve loved the cosmetic campaigns, specifically the eye cream and makeup campaigns. As I’m getting older I’m always looking for products to help me age more “gracefully,” but I loathe spending a lot of money if I don’t even know if the product works. Via the BzzAgent campaigns, I’ve become a big fan of the Covergirl Age Defying products!
What makes you want to talk about a product? How do you Bzz?
If I love or loathe a product, I’ll shout it to the world because personal experience is the BEST unbiased information out there. I Bzz: Face-to-Face over coffee, email, via my Blog & Facebook.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what 3 CDs would you bring?
“Love Stinks” by J Giles Band; “The Meditative Chopin” by Roy Eaton and “Very Best of Daryl Hall & John Oates” by Hall & Oates. “Love Stinks” is outstanding! Not a bad song on it and good for a laugh (which you’d need alone on a deserted island!). I’ve been a fan of Hall & Oates for alomst 30 years and wouldn’t want to be without them…ever. And “The Meditative Chopin” is my FAVORITE classical music album of all time. Really helps calm you down when things are stressful.
If you could have dinner with any 3 people living or dead, who would they be?
Stephen King – The guy writes some amazing books (where does he come up with this stuff?!) AND plays in a band. Seems to me to be the ideal guest for a lively dinner!
Angelina Jolie – She seems to be well read and charming, which makes for an excellent dinner guest. Plus. we could swap adoption stories AND my daughter would have some kids to play with!
Martin Luther- The guy took on the Pope & the Catholic Church, was excommunicated, married a former nun, translated the Bible into the language of the people (instead of just Latin), founded a church and was a prolific writer of hymns. I know tradition says to avoid discussion of religion in social situations but this guy would be a fascinating, educated guest!
Thanks for the chance to do some hard thinking, BzzAgent! Looking forward to more campaigns!!
