Born and raised in Denver, CO, Ms. Albrecht attended Colorado University on a Talent and Creativity scholarship. She began her writing, directing and producing career at age 21, in Los Angeles, on a 2-hour ABC network prime-time special. Since then she has written, directed and produced over 80 aired hours of network and national cable television, most of which have been rated in the top 10% of audience viewing and received critical acclaim.
She was under exclusive contract at Disney Studios for years and has also been associated with Johnny Carson Productions, ABC, NBC, CBS, TV Guide, HBO, Disney Channel and Ron Howard among others.
Although her specialty is family entertainment, she has written in nearly every genre. Currently, she has put together a motion picture company, The Creation Factory Int'l, Inc, with an "A" list management team from the major studios, including in-house world-wide distribution, specializing in family films (animated and live-action). Her focus is on finding financial partners for this endeavor.
She is also open to freelance writing assignments - novels and screenplays. She can be reached through her LinkedIn or Facebook page.
She is honored by inclusion in Who's Who of Entertainment, and Who's who of Business Leaders worldwide.
