As a former broadcast journalist, Charlotte began making her mark when she broke the story of the nation’s largest city pension fund crisis in U.S. history in San Diego in 2004. Dubbed “Enron by the Sea”, the story brought international media attention as two SEC investigations and the coverage resulted in the resignation of the San Diego city mayor, treasurer and auditor when city employees watched helplessly as their benefits diminished. The pension fund fraud marked the largest financial catastrophe the city of San Diego had ever experienced. Next, Charlotte followed that investigation with months of reporting on the nation’s largest congressional corruption case in U.S. history when former Congressman Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham was convicted of taking 2.4 million dollars in bribes from defense contractors.
Charlotte bridged from broadcast journalism to executive leadership in the private sector – leading marketing and communications for a national food franchise, Dream Dinners, and west coast senior living company Aegis Living operating on the West Coast. As a consultant over the years, Charlotte has been a media advisor to the C-suite at Starbucks, as well as Fortune 50 professionals and a number of non-profits. Charlotte brings a long track record of awards in her fields ranging from Emmy Awards to Associated Press, Press Club and Public Relations Society of America for work ranging from journalism and broadcasting to crisis communications, marketing, digital marketing, national events and internal and external communications. Charlotte resides in Seattle and enjoys running, the beach, family time and lots of coffee.
