Writer/Editor

About Me

I have been a freelance writer and editor off and on for 20+ years. I took a bit of a hiatus after giving birth to my children but they are older and in school now so I'm diving back into my career.

I've written and edited books, newsletters, magazine articles, newspaper articles, web content, fiction, non-fiction, grant proposals and numerous other pieces. The topics I've covered run the gamut from home decorating and gardening to career advice, non-profit stewardship, and parenting. I have held full-time positions as a magazine editor, interactive media editor, and grant writer.

Outside of writing and editing my interests include skiing, running with my dogs, reading (I owned a bookstore once too), cooking for my family, sewing and knitting, photography, and gardening (I hold a Master Gardener license).

My work is always authentic and specific to my clients' needs and visions. Quality and turn-around time are of utmost importance.
