Cynthia is a corporate writer by day and creative writer by night. After 19 idyllic years in the Midwest, she weaned herself from the tit of the suburbs and headed to New York where she’s spent the last 20 years turning news from executives into messages for employees. While she adores cable TV, Crest Whitestrips and gossip magazines, her partner of nearly two decades and her sweet baby girl are her true loves.
