A huge film and stand-up comedy buff, Colette has worked in publicity, marketing and promotions for over twenty years. A graduate from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a B.A. degree in Communications, her storied career began in radio as Promotions Director for local radio station, WILD-AM. From there she transitioned to the world of stand-up comedy handling publicity and marketing for The Comedy Connection in Faneuil Hall, one of the country’s top ten comedy clubs. Following her stint there, she was hired for her branding and marketing prowess for the start-up concert venue Showcase Live in Foxborough, MA. Colette later took on the role of Public Relations manager for The Roxbury International Film Festival. The self-described “woman on the go,” her passion for travel, food and all things entertainment can be read about in her bi-weekly column In the Mix.
