I’ve had a passion for writing as long as I can remember, thanks to my journalist dad raising me in a newsroom. By my senior year of college, I was running a newsroom of my own as the editor-in-chief of the award-winning Lumberjack student newspaper. It was there that I learned about the power of graphic design and marketing to compliment good writing.

After completing my undergraduate degree in journalism, I pursued a master’s degree in marketing to hone my craft. Since then, I’ve been fortunate to work with a diverse range of clients, from media agencies to B2B companies, startups to nonprofits. You can learn more about my writing, editing and marketing services here.

When I’m not working, you can find me on the beach with my dog Anabella, in a yoga studio, or taking photos of the great outdoors. I also have a fierce love of international travel, having set foot in 27 countries so far. Next up: Peru!
