*** My website is in transition, and so as it is brewing – I hope you will allow me this opportunity to introduce myself. ***
I strive to be a compassionate maverick. A word pixie and thought polisher.
I LOVE to write & to create. I delight in the powerful way that WORDS can also be ART. One of my favorite things about writing is its ability to connect us with others.
I LOVE to edit. To help someone’s words to come alive with clarity and beauty is an honor. To help people to share their message, their creativity, and their heart is a joy.
I LOVE to help others to share their message and passion. I especially enjoy assisting nonprofits and small business owners with their online presence – website, blog, social media, e-newsletters, and special fundraising campaigns.
Animals, words, and creativity are inspirational constants in my life. In my pursuits, I aim to embrace a spirit of adventure, freedom, truth, beauty, courage, compassion, and love.
I have a deep passion, love, & respect for ALL animals and for the Earth. I enjoy a vegan lifestyle and strive to reduce my footprint on the planet. My compassion and respect for animals is the basis for a new, writing project. I am always looking for ways my love of writing, editing, art, and animals can come together.
More of My Story
My career began with achieving my master’s degree in criminology and completing federal training as an investigator. My passion for helping others led to my professional certification as a life coach. I soon began to embrace my love of writing, both as a freelance writer and as a journalist with a city newspaper in Maryland. I eventually dove into the online world of social media, websites, and blogs, and used my coaching skills to help nonprofits and small business owners to utilize the web for raising awareness and sharing their message.
How do I spend my free time? With my “Pack,” of course! I have always shared my life with dogs and in recent years have learned cherished lessons from my dogs with special needs. Reading, music, spending time in nature, and creating with alcohol inks are self-care activities I enjoy when the dogs allow me a break.
