Who is Bookaholic?

A native North Carolinian, Deirdre Pippins, also known as, Ms. Media Content, is a proud Southerner. She has been an entrepreneur since 2005 helping her husband create and operate their home health healthcare company. 

 

The majority of her career, however,  has been spent in media.  She has worked in radio (CBS), billboards (business development), corporate communications (banking), and newspaper (advertising sales).  She has also worked as an ad agency copywriter and trained by the Creative Director on graphic design.

 

The underlying basis of her media experience began with receiving a BA degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Her geeky strong suit in the writing process is copy editing.  She has ghostwritten two how-to books.

 

Deirdre is a UNC Tarheel superfan and a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., The Links, Incorporated, an associate member, and past regional officer of Jack and Jill of America, and a board member of Friends of the Gaston County Public Library.  She is also a community advocate, world traveler, luxury handbag fanatic, wife, and mother of two adult sons.
