who i am

Combat veteran, mother of 4, former public servant and current freelance writer, I've spent my life writing - first for school, then for the government, and now for myself. The fun of freelance writing is in the diversity of people I meet and the variety of projects I get to work on. From authoring strategic plans to publishing in academic journals to writing for children, I love going down the rabbit hole of a new challenge. And while I can credit my education and professional experiences with providing the basic tools of the trade, my greatest source of inspiration is the imaginative worlds I explore with my children. Whether we're hiking through fox-filled forests around our home in Northern Virginia or adventuring together through the pages of a good book, they are the light that never fails.
