About

I've been a professional journalist for more than 20 years, with experience writing and editing for magazines, newspapers, and websites. My writing focuses on a variety of topics, including food/agriculture, health, parenting, and home/garden. I also write web content for a variety of brands, and I teach journalism and mass-media courses at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.

I'm a born storyteller, with a knack for finding the humanity in every story I report and write, whether it's about seasonal-allergy sufferers or teenage farmers, breast-cancer survivors or rattlesnake wranglers. Plus, I've been doing this a long time. Deadlines, strong sourcing, clean copy, facts, facts, facts—all of that matters, too.

What else? I'm the mother of two rambunctious boys (and a dog). I'm a lover of mountains and trees, a wannabe wanderer, a runner, and an enthusiastic consumer of good coffee, good beer, good vintage, good music, and good stories.

I'd love to work with you. Please get in touch!
