She has written articles for numerous publications before publishing her first nonfiction book with The History Press.

Today, she is a principal in Yopko Penhallurick LLC, an award-winning Chagrin Falls public relations agency, and she is APR certified by the Public Relations Society of America. A graduate of Lake Erie College, she is a Trustee of the Ohio History Connection (formerly Ohio Historical Society) and has served on the Board of Trustees for the Chagrin Valley PHA Horse Show, Fieldstone Farm Therapeutic Riding Center and the Ohio Humanities Council.
