Freelancing in the foothills of the Blue Ridge
I help people tell stories, land sales, win grant awards, and save time.
From custom speeches to blog posts, curriculum guides to web content, I serve clients around the globe. I also write lifestyle features, design features, and exclusive profiles for several local and regional print magazines, and I'm in currently working on three different concept books for children.
I stepped into freelancing after stepping out of the classroom in 2011. During my tenure as an English teacher, I revived the creative writing and literary magazine programs; subsequently, the publications I advised earned national recognition and top-place awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. I had the honor of speaking and presenting at the CSPA Spring Convention in 2008 and went on to serve as a publications adjudicator.
My experiences are invaluable, but my strength lies in crafting articles, features, and speeches that hit home with readers and helping writers convey their messages in the clearest and most effective way possible. I seek work that I can embrace and that can make a positive impact on others.
A born-and-bred Long Island girl who's allergic to both cats and politics, I come by my fondness for bagels, sense of place, and Billy Joel honestly and unapologetically. These days, I live with my husband and two children in sweet Virginia.
