After a short stint in the product placement department she made the move to the talent department handling personal PR for actors and actresses. In the summer of 2000 she joined Susan Patricola at her firm Patricola Public Relations where she was Senior VP until she opened her own firm.

"At the time, Weinman specialized in male TV actors and had stars of shows on every network by having clients on CSI, 24, The West Wing, That 70’s Show, Law & Order, Malcolm in the Middle and Buffy the Vampire Slayer all at the same time. With an itch of wanting more she quickly sought to sign new and up and coming talent in the feature film world, launching the careers of Chris Evans, Justin Long and DJ Qualls. (Who later officiated her wedding) Having built a reputation for dealing with strong, creative personalities, she then found herself working with Farrah Fawcett Mo’Nique and Martin Lawrence. To this day the majority of her clients have been with her 15 years or longer.

"Being a fan of music she found herself at various shows usually accompanying one of her clients. It was through Danny Masterson that she met DJ AM. They quickly became friends and was eventually doing PR for him. Soon she became one of the most sought after publicists in the electronic and dance music community launching both DJ AM and DJ Paul Okenfold into their Las Vegas residencies at the Palms Hotel. AM had risen in popularity and was soon working with other high profile musicians including famed drummer, Travis Barker. AM and Barker soon created a musical act, TRV$DJAM which led to her representing Barker as well. Weinman has also worked on many projects including famed DJ mix Master Mike as well as cult pop icon Dirt Nasty (aka Simon Rex.)

"Her musical roster currently includes Travis Barker, Blink 182, Steve Aoki, DJ Ztrip the rock duo Black Pistol Fire, and Porter Robinson among others

"As an avid environmentalist she sits on the board of the Environmental Media Association, specifically the parents board and works closely with them on all of their projects. She’s has also been on numerous host committees for events for EWG as well as 5Gyers and The Surfrider Foundation." [1]
