While writing and marketing are two of my passions, I also enjoy photography, gardening, cooking and baking, playing Frisbee with our border collie “Moko,” spending time with family and friends, running, yoga, traveling, and playing word games like Scrabble and Boggle.

I am confident that you will find my personality to be friendly, approachable, and eager to please. I am very down-to-earth and attentive to details, working toward perfection every time. It is my personal goal to make everyone happy, including clients,  friends, family members, and loved ones. I do believe in living each day to the fullest, and most especially in chasing your dreams to get the most out of life. How about I  help you get there?

My unbridled motivation and passion for writing and marketing position me as an expert in my field and a great asset to those in need of creative services. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
