About Me

I'm a writer, editor, educator, and lifelong learner. I love to write, research, inform and inspire. I have degrees in education, writing, and social sciences. I'm particularly interested in creative writing, higher education, e-learning, health, medical, families parenting and children; however, I'm comfortable writing and researching on topics unfamiliar to me.
