About Me

I began my professional writing career in 2010 with my first peer reviewed book review. Before that time I had been writing at the graduate level and completed a heavily research and writing based master's degree and graduated magna cum laude. Since then I have written several articles that have gone to publication in journals and as book chapters. Additionally I have presented many papers at scholarly society meetings that are published with their annual meeting collections. 

Most of my published writing has been in religious studies, theology and mission as that has be the focus of my masters and doctoral work. I also serve as associate editor for the blogsite of an academic society. Topics that I have covered have been in how spirituality relates to the health care industry as I spent many years working in that environment. I understand the complexities of our health care systems and how patients and families often feel lost in the process. 

On international subjects, my studies and publications are focused in part on Africa and Latin America, specifically Venezuela. Subjects covered spirituality, social justice and grass roots organizations. Two of my articles are published on books on religious aspects in Africa and Latin America. 

Some of my recent popular work is writing blog posts for a client focused on the deregulation of energy providers in Texas. The client has requested posts that describe their ability to assist customers in finding the best supplier for their needs. I also recently wrote two short articles on the integration of spirituality and physical symptoms and changes. 

In addition to the experience listed above, my undergraduate degree is in Art and Interior Design. I spent many years in the Interior-Architectural design and building industry and would be able to write very effectively in that area. Another area that I would be comfortable writing about is the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. I have lived here all my life and enjoy the diverse communities that we have here. 

I also enjoy traveling; I love learning new things and traveling to new places and then telling others about it! Good conversations over a great cup of coffee or nice glass of wine, a love of horses and boxer dogs, faith, family and the beach round out a small portion of my interests and what I like to research and write about.

My strong research skills have been developed through my years in graduate and post-graduate studies. I would welcome the opportunity to assist with your written content needs, with a strong ability to complete white papers.
