I have always been a writer, but it took me many years and several career changes to finally dedicate myself to my true calling. I now write and edit for two area Neighbors Magazines, maintain a personal blog and, through freelancing, help other people grow their businesses by writing and editing content for their websites and printed material. One of my favorite aspects of writing for and about other people is the opportunity to put personality on the page. Each person and business is unique, and it is a challenge and delight to help a business owner express that uniqueness.

I live in Austin, Texas, with my spouse, Jason, our two boys and a cranky but loyal mutt named Zoe. Besides reading and writing, I enjoy concocting homemade skin care products, gardening, yoga, making waffles and volunteering at my kids’ school.

You can learn more about me on Facebook. For more about what goes on in my head, check out my personal blog or see what I like to read on Goodreads.
