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. I am also a regular writer at Sciencing.com and Work+Money. 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!
