MeetUp in John's Creek
Dan ("Mountain Man") Easton, Judy Harper and I were among some 50 attendees at Dagmar Sands's program in John's Creek last week. Congratulations, Dagmar, with this success; it is not easy these days to hold monthly events to which people return time and again. You ought to bottle and sell the formula!
A love of reading and a terrific high school teacher made me a writer, a book (Georgia Gardener's Guide, by Erica Glasener and Walter Reeves) made me a gardener, and a casual lunch with my friend Pat Bowen is the reason why I became a Certified Georgia Master Gardener. Since 2005, I have written monthly gardening columns for the Barrow-Jackson Journal, the Georgia Asian Times and The Nooze. I also write for a number of e-zines and for private clients - anything from LinkedIn profiles to web content to case studies, personal bios, corporate profiles, tag lines and more. A niche specialty is working with international scientists whose articles require the scrutiny of an extra set of eyes before they are published in professional journals.
My company, The Oliver/Sorano Group, Inc., handles marketing and PR projects for a variety of clients, and provides a home to Atlanta Women in Business.
