More Ways to Win
The writers of our PCH Blog work year ’round to provide you with the latest updates on winning opportunities, plus relevant information and entertaining stories about PCH, our winners and life as a PCHer. From newcomers to seasoned veterans, with experience in a variety of departments, they share news as it happens, a behind the scenes view and historical perspective to keep you involved and in touch. We invite your feedback, so let us know your thoughts, reactions and questions about PCH. Although many people write stories for the PCH Blog from time to time, here’s your chance to get to know our most regular contributors.
February 26, 2007: it’s a day I’ll always remember because it was my first day at Publishers Clearing House. I started “fresh out of college” as a Junior Copywriter. Back then I couldn’t imagine that someday I’d be Associate Creative Director, part of a team responsible for creating, from scratch, the PCH packages that come to your mailbox. And now I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything different – I just love it! But you know what I love even more? Writing for the PCHblog! Your comments make my day, so please keep them coming! When I’m not writing for PCH, I love starting dance parties, getting lost in a good book, and watching (and wishing I was on) reality TV competitions.
I began my PCH career in 2008 working in the online Product Mix department where my responsibilities were to analyze results and select the best PCH merchandise assortment possible that you would see in your emails. In 2010 I joined the Promotion Development group where I brainstorm with a group of highly knowledgeable and passionate PCH employees to create the sweepstakes contests you love to enter and hope to win! Along with office responsibilities tied to this position, I am a new Prize Patrol member, in fact, the newest member of the PCH Prize Patrol Elite Team. I remember watching the famous winning moment PCH commercials growing up, but never did I imagine that I would be the one knocking the door of PCH winners carrying flowers, balloons and that BIG check! Personally, I have been a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer for as long as I remember - studying in Tap, Jazz, Contemporary and Hip-Hop. I also am extremely passionate about dogs, and when time permits, I would love to volunteer at a local animal shelter. My favorite quote is "Dance as if no one were watching, Sing as if no one were listening, Live every day as if it were your last."

Since 1981 I have handled numerous advertising and public relations duties at Publishers Clearing House. But the “hands-down” favorite part of my job has been dropping-in on hundreds of PCH Sweepstakes winners all over the USA and delivering roses, balloons and -- ta dah! -- The Big Check. These folks never know the Prize Patrol is coming, so the videotaped surprises you see in our TV commercials are “reality TV” at its best. I keep in touch with our ever-growing family of winners through phone calls, emails and Christmas cards, and they are all tremendously grateful that they (1) entered our sweepstakes and (2) experienced a “winning moment” they will never forget. My hobby of choice is playing the grand piano where I composed PCH’s theme song, “The House Where Dreams Come True.”

I've been a PCHer for over 30 years and that's given me the opportunity to work in many different departments and learn our business from the ground up. Today I'm in charge of Creative, Communications, the PCH Contest and Consumer Affairs. I love thinking of new ideas for prizes and promotions and I enjoy working with the talented colleagues who inspire me daily. I'm thrilled to be involved with blogging and social media not only because they give me a chance to share my passion for our company and the people behind the scenes here, but also because I can hear what's on your mind and share your thoughts with other PCHers! When I'm away from the office, I take an active role in my community by fundraising for my local library, participating in our school district's Teacher Center Policy Board, supporting our residents' environmental beautification organization and singing in my church choir. My hobbies are running, working out and playing the flute. I'm also developing a fondness for hiking and rock scrambling and look forward to active excursions with my husband and family. My favorite TV shows are Star Trek and CSI. My philosophy in life is to try to make the world a better place.

Even when I was very young, I knew I wanted to be a writer. Little did I know that one day I'd have the opportunity to write for a great company like Publishers Clearing House! I get to write for the PCH blogs and help craft the content of the PCHSearch&Win website and email program. (By the way, PCHSearch&Win is a fantastic website where searchers can win instant prizes and get entries to win even bigger PCH Prizes ― you should check it out.) On the blogs, I love getting a chance to connect with our readers and explain what goes on behind the scenes at PCH. When I'm not at work or driving the Long Island Expressway belting out 80s tunes, I can be found spending time with my family, experimenting in the kitchen, exploring the world around me and taking ridiculously cute photos of our guinea pig. My personal goal is to never stop learning!

I joined PCH in 2008 as an Online Marketing Coordinator. When I started at PCH, I was working on PCHgames, PCHlotto and some of our other online properties. Today I manage the social media efforts here at Publishers Clearing House which include our Facebook fan page, twitter feed, youtube channel, and the PCHblog. What I find most exciting about my job is that I get to talk to real PCH fans each and every day via these social tools. In the process, I learn a ton about what makes our customers happy while collecting feedback on how we can do our jobs better. So far that feedback has been used to create new sweepstakes campaigns, improve our microsites and think about new ways to engage with our fans. On a personal note, I love to ride my bike, go camping and visit my extended family in Argentina whenever possible. Some of my favorite TV shows are Lost, V, 24 and Man vs. Wild. My ultimate dream would be to one day own a vegetable and chicken farm.

I work at Publishers Clearing House and I love it! Besides helping make people’s dreams come true at PCH, I enjoy reading (Jane Austen is my favorite author), going to the beach, and traveling (my favorite foreign cities are London and Munich). I like meeting new people so feel free to leave comments!
I'm your go-to gal with the can-do attitude, and I just love being a PCHer! Everything here is fun -- from writing descriptions about our hottest products, to coming up with new ways to introduce our Giveaways and getting social with our PCHTips -- being a PCHer really is amazing. I can't believe that I've been writing here since 2008 -- boy, are my hands tired! (ba dum bump) ;). Seriously though, writing blogs is one of my favorite things to do, not only because I get to share stories about my daughter and day-to-day, but because I get to know you better through your kind words and comments. I look forward to them every time I post! When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my family and friends and, although they're really hard to find here in NY, I do enjoy a good barn dance!

We have multiple PCH employees contribute to the blog from time to time. Instead of making new profiles for each new writer, we created this umbrella profile. The writers who do not have profiles will always sign the post with their names.

I love to work and am grateful for my terrific job with Publishers Clearing House! In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my cat and my ferrets, reading, and singing. Since I’m passionate about animals and their well being, I have worked to help homeless animals and families who no longer have the means to support their pets. I look forward to an ever brighter future each day!
