Director of Promotional Products
Panther Group LLC
Before joining Panther Group, I spent 27 years as the sole proprietor of Get Noticed with RJF Marketing, a promotional marketing agency. During that time I had the pleasure of connecting with a variety of clients to help them achieve their promotional needs. In 2010, I completed the requirements for a CAS (Certified Advertising Specialist) degree and am continuing the coursework to get my MAS (Master Advertising Specialist). I have served on numerous committees in the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI). As a former board member of the Brighton Chamber of Commerce, I helped grow the membership to over 250 members..
On a personal note, I was born in France and enjoy singing in the Eastman-Rochester Choir and bicycling. Most importantly, I love visiting with my 2 adult children, their spouses, and my grandchildren. I accept guesses about my middle name.
