About Me

 I’m a freelance writer and published author with over 17 years of experience in creating content for the web. Prior to my freelance career, I worked for over 12 years in traditional (print) publishing.

Through my online writing, I picked up additional skills which enabled me to assist several online brands as a social media consultant, specializing in online community development.Additionally, I worked as a conference director and community manager for blogging-related conferences.

Clients include Pfizer, Newscred, Leaf Group, LoveToKnow, iParenting Media, LegalZoom, John C. Wiley Publishing ("for Dummies), About.com, Type-A Parent, Social Media Examiner, and others.

When I’m not writing, my favorite things are nagging my family, vacuuming dog hair tumbleweeds from my tile floor, and climbing mountains of laundry.

Just kidding! I love none of those things!

I’m always up for a good bingewatch, passionate about books, and my famous sangria brings all the boys to the yard. If you’re looking for me, try my back deck where I can be found enjoying a meal with my family, reading a good book, or just counting my lucky stars.
