Growing up, I was often told that I thought too much and asked too many questions.
The message was clear: my insatiably curious mind could get on others’ nerves. So I learned to channel my thirst for knowledge by combining it with my love of writing for a career in journalism.
After graduating from Ball State University with a degree in Magazine Journalism in 2011 and my byline in Running Times and Cincinnati Magazine, I ventured into the world of trade publications, starting with a greenhouse magazine in Cleveland. I later made the move to Milwaukee to work on a sustainable agriculture magazine, where I eventually climbed up the masthead ladder to managing editor and handled everything from proofing pages, to planning content, to writing features, to recording the twice-a-month podcast.
But when my husband landed a job some 800 miles away in South Carolina after earning his PhD in math (#proudwife), I was ready to set up shop as an entrepreneur and get back to what I really loved: writing.
Which brings us full circle. Today you’ll find me at my computer or on the phone, still using my inquisitive nature and love of storytelling to write content that’ll connect with the reader and serve them in a way that builds trust in your brand.
Work with me and you’ll probably learn…
♦ I love running. I’ve run everything from 5Ks to marathons and qualifying/running the Boston Marathon is No. 1 on my bucket list.
♦ Lake Erie wine country in New York is my favorite place in the world and I try to spend as much time there every summer as possible.
♦ I’m happiest outside in warm weather, so after living in Wisconsin for four years, I’m thrilled that South Carolina is my new home.
♦ I really do love writing. When I’m not freelance writing, I’m usually working on something for my personal blog.
♦ I’m a cat person and currently have a quirky little calico. I also have a galgo (Spanish greyhound), and contrary to popular belief, he’s even lazier than my cat.
