In 2006, Schron was elevated to director of production on-air, marketing division, for USA. As such, she was responsible for managing a multi-million dollar production budget and planning the physical production of all promotional materials created by and for the network's on-air promotions, off-air advertising, online and consumer promotions. This included brand and image campaigns, TV and radio promos, film and video shoots, trade and consumer print advertising, gallery and episodic photography and press kits for all marketing, publicity and ad sales divisions. During her tenure at USA, Schron has worked on the promos for such shows as BURN NOTICE, ROYAL PAINS, WHITE COLLAR and COVERT AFFAIRS, the network's latest hit original series, to name a few.

After a stint at Lifetime Television, she joined the marketing division for SyFy. As associate producer, she produced promos for shows such as "Crossing Over with John Edward" (2001), Steven Spielberg's "Taken" (2002) and "Children of Dune" (2003), among others, and was also involved in SyFy's rebranding. She continued to rise through the ranks and was ultimately promoted to project manager, on-air for the marketing division.
