About Me

I’m an educator and a freelance writer and editor; a lover of stories both written and told; a believer in the power of words to forge connections across time and boundaries -- geographical, political, social, and personal. 

For me, writing is an immersion experience. Since I began freelancing in late 2009, I've had the great fortune to meet and interview many people -- from politicians and entrepreneurs to artists of all kinds, academics and experts to passionate folks, like a giant pumpkin growing competitor. Each assignment has offered a chance to be in someone else's world, ask questions, and find, if not answers, an expanded understanding of him/her, myself, and the world.  

 

My interviews, essays, stories, and features have appeared in SliceFull Grown PeopleNewport LifeMercuryTravelMagGo Nomad, and elsewhere. I am the U.S. & Canada Editor for TravelMag.com

When not exploring with my husband and our toddler, I enjoy reading, running, hiking, eating interesting food, attempting to cook said food (and often failing!), playing boardgames, and laughing with friends. 

I'm a CA native currently living in Busan, South Korea. Being married to a Naval officer = moving A LOT = exposure = a unique, ever-evolving perspective.  

 

My Philosophy

Craft writing worthy of readers’ time

No longer is a writer’s greatest challenge to tell a good story or provide clear, coherent information. First, she must catch readers’ attention AND THEN make the writing so good that readers lose track of time, and gratefully so. 

What separates the stories people forget from the stories we cannot let go –- the ones that grip us, strikes us deep within, and become a part of us forever? 

The stories we forget, I've found, have no pulse. They are descriptions of experiences, yes, but they don’t cause us to connect or disconnect or move us to question, reflect, or act. 

Whether writing to inform or entertain (or both), I strive to find (and ensure readers feel) the pulse of a piece. How? By excavating experience -- mining the facts, figures, details, and personal stories -- to figure out and then communicate the answer every reader is asking, "Why does this matter?" 

Check out my portfolio to see my philosophy in action. Looking forward to working with you!
