    “She was a remarkable person,” said Scott Seltz, VP and publishing director of Nielsen’s Food Group, “a beautiful personality and an individual who chose to see the good in everyone and in everything. And it was that latter quality that had the most profound affect on me personally.”

    Prior to launching her own publishers’ rep firm, Cline worked at White Associates as West Coast sales manager from 1996 to 2006.
