Me, in a nutshell:
Writer. Editor. Author. Restorative Yoga Evangelist (and instructor). Documentarian. INFJ. Lover of books, Boston terriers, Browncoats, and baked goods. (Also alliteration.)
And the little bit longer version:
I’ve been working with words professionally for more than 20 years. During that time, I’ve
had hundreds of bylines in publications like O - the Oprah Magazine, People, Spirituality & Health, Broadly, Lifehacker, The Simple Dollar, Architectural Digest, Ozy, Springs magazine, and the Colorado Springs Independent (where I was an editor and reporter for almost seven years) — multiple stories have won awards through the Society of Professional Journalists;
written and published a book, 100 Things to Do in Colorado Springs Before You Die, and
helped raise millions of dollars in grant support for a variety of health and human services, arts and culture, animal welfare, and educational nonprofits.
I’ve also collaborated with more than 60 clients on writing or editing projects, coached clients in business writing, and mentored more than 50 high school and college newspaper interns.
I'm an alumna of Colorado College (B.A., English), a former conference director (twice) for the Pikes Peak Writers Conference, and a 10-plus-year volunteer for the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region. While I've been living in Colorado for more than 25 years now, I grew up in the Chicago area and I freakin' love pizza.
While at this stage in my career I prefer helping others tell their stories, I do love learning new things and I’ll try just about anything once (and probably write about it). You’ll find evidence of that in some of my favorite story assignments (read this and this).
If all this is intriguing enough, I invite you to sign up for my every-now-and-again newsletter. You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram. These are the two primary places you'll find me on the interwebs. If you’re interested in working with me, learn more about my ghostwriting/editing services here.
Oh, and thanks for reading all this way!
