Simone McDowell is a public relations and marketing pro who knows how to find the
perfect gift, for the perfect budget. She has been sharing her insights and ideas on
honeebeegifts.blogspot.com since July 2008.

Based in Charlotte, she is a regular contributor for SouthPark Magazine and Charlotte Style
Magazine and Shecky’s, a lifestyle company based in New York. A native of Baltimore, Simone
earned her Bachelor of Arts from Bowie State University and her Master’s Degree from College
of Notre Dame of Maryland. She has also taught the art of public speaking at University of
North Carolina at Charlotte. When she isn’t blogging or finding the perfect gift, you can find
her enjoying the arts, good food, and working with several community nonprofits including the
Young Affliates of the Mint Museum where she serves on their board of directors.

She really is Charlotte's expert on finding the perfect gift. I personally think that's because
Simone is such a thoughtful person and she really listens to what you're saying. Those traits with
her great eye for style are what have made her so successful –Olivia Fortson, Charlotte Observer

"It just isn’t the holidays or a special occasion without Simone coming into our studios to do a gifts segment!  She’s got this bright energy and conversational style that really resonates with our viewers.  With such a variety of gift ideas, there’s always something for every one of our viewers.  Forget about boring gift cards, or contrived chocolates and flowers.  Her ideas are so creative and unique, I always end each segment thinking “I can’t wait to give…or get one of those!”-Dion Lim, WCNC NewsChannel 36
