Barbara Nonas is proud to be a native of New York City. She has worked in book publishing, in television (as as a New York-based news producer and reporter for Italian National Television), public relations (representing clients ranging from international opera singers to Fortune 500 companies), and a brief stint in jewelry design. She speaks Italian and, on a good day, can muster up some French and Spanish. She currently has her own public relations firm which specializes in campaigns for non-profit organizations. She lives in midtown with her husband and 9-year old son, and is thoroughly enjoying writing for Woman Around Town.
