Some people thrive on constant changes, new horizons, and plenty of adventure. That’s definitely true for me — I lived on both coasts before settling here in Ohio. I love exploring new places and ideas. And I’m always finding amazing new people and stories through my work!


Still, you can always count on two things from me. First, dedication to the art and power of the written word. I was a creative writing major in college and spent 10 years in newspaper journalism, meeting celebrities and hometown heroes, flying in experimental airplanes and riding along in monster snowplows during New England blizzards. Since 2011, I’ve worked as an independent writer and editor for both local news and global media. Best of all, I’ve had the honor of helping six first-time book authors achieve their publishing dreams.


My other lifelong passion has been supporting people in their efforts to learn, transform, and grow. I’ve led countless workshops on writing and life skills for all ages, helped people develop healthier relationships through Nonviolent Communication, and brought Janet Thomas’ extraordinary BreakFree for Women program to the Midwest starting in 2012.
