About

I'm a writer, editor, and creative who's worked for 18 years creating print and digital content. I earned my M.F.A. in creative writing from Northwestern University and tell stories across mediums—web, print, video, you name it. My time as a journalist and editor laid the foundation for work that helps organizations discover their authentic story. I've collaborated in great creative groups with smart people and crave more of the same.

My interests are diverse. I've worked in the wine industry and taken classes in herbs, aromatherapy, perfume- and soap-making. I handcraft 100% soy scented candles and write about wellness, beauty, travel, spas, health, DIY, and food/drink. I'm often called on as a panelist and consultant for media and web projects.  

Currently, I write for business and lifestyle clients, edit novels for Curbside Splendor, and teach/coach authors. Some active projects are writing an e-book for a tech startup and copywriting for artisanal chocolate and liquor companies.
