One wordsmith. Endless possibilities.

For more than a decade, I have melded my storytelling talents and writing expertise with a variety of projects for an array of publications, readers and clients, owing those creative juices to countless cups of black coffee and a thirst for wordsmithing. I am a writer and children's book author, a wife and a mother of three, a runner and a nature lover. I am a wanna-be-world changer and a storyteller at heart.

My story.

Through my years as a writer, I have had the privilege of telling many stories. The stories have ranged in scope and breadth, in subject matter and execution. Some have told personal tales and others have told product stories, each with a specific purpose and reader in mind.

My training in fiction writing gives me a good foundation of thinking creatively, while my years of experience in marketing, advertising and article writing have given me the ability to use my skills in concrete, focused applications, including websites, blogs, scripts, advertisements, brochures, articles, a children’s book, press releases, direct mail pieces, newsletters and more. My writing has appeared in publications, such as C Magazine, The FAMILY Magazine of Michiana, Giving Birth with Confidence, Mother’s Advocate, SASSY Magazine, The South Bend Tribune and Today’s Christian Woman, to name a few.

I don’t simply bring words to a project. I work hard to develop the tone, flow and overall impression to match each project’s needs, while keeping the audience in mind. I believe in the importance of storytelling…and black coffee.

So, if you’re looking for a writer/editor, I hope you’ll contact me. We can talk wordsmithing and storytelling, and maybe even how to change the world.
