Mommy By Day, Freelance Writer By Night

About Me

Hi! I'm a freelance writer who delights in breathing life into dull topics - making complicated information 'digestible' is fun for me. My natural tone is young, light-hearted, and conversational, but I can adapt my voice to match a variety of projects. 

I've worked primarily with start-ups, non-profits and small businesses in my community. My work encompasses everything from blog posts to how-to guides, and I love learning new things through my research. 

In my spare time, I enjoy writing (of course!), experimenting with new recipes, exercising, hiking, thrift shopping, and exploring Colorado with my family. 

My writing experience is highlighted here; check out my LinkedIn profile for a more formal resume. I received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Florida in Anthropology and Classical Studies.
