GET UPDATES FROM Joan Lebow
 
Joan Lebow started her career in journalism then transitioned into public relations, corporate communications and marketing.
She's touted shiny fabrics, brilliant doctors and political stars and is ever on the lookout for the bright side of life's absurdities.
Her favorite articles written as a reporter included a Crain's NY Business piece about What Italians Make for Passover, and What's That Thingamajig in the John? - her Wall Street Journal page one about luxury hotels.
As a flack, she's handled some doozies -- some pure fun, some quite serious and consequential. Lebow was a spokesperson for NYC's Mayor and NY State's Comptroller. She spent ten years in healthcare, including overseeing corporate communications in a large NJ hospital system where human interest stories never end.
She's glad blogging is a chance to get back to a more personal writing style and promises more to come.
