Hi! I am a freelance writer who loves to learn about new things and then write about them. I’ve been writing as long as I could hold a pencil and started my professional career working as an assistant editor at a biweekly computer trade journal. In recent years, my work has appeared in parenting websites as well as at  Pacific Standard, Racked and The Hill. Common topics include parenting (particularly teens and young adults), education, health, science, history,  nature, travel,and social issues (especially the challenges of homelessness). I’m currently a member of the American Society of Journalists & Authors, the National Association of Science Writers and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.  I invite you to take a look at my blogs as well as my column “Life on the Other Side” at Sammiches and Psych Meds which can be accessed by clicking on the links above.

When I am not writing articles and blog posts, I am working on a young adult historical novel that takes place on the Titanic or spending time with my family. I love the outdoors, whether it be at the beach or the mountains, especially if there is flowing water nearby. I usually have my camera along with me; most of the photos scattered throughout this site are mine.

Thanks for stopping by!
