A compassionate maverick. A word pixie and thought polisher.
Animals, words, and creativity are inspirational constants in my life. In each of my pursuits, I strive to embrace a spirit of adventure, freedom, truth, beauty, courage, compassion, and love.
I LOVE to write. 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 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 new ways for my love of writing, editing, art, and animals to come together.
I also 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.
As part of helping others to share their message and their passion, I enjoy assisting nonprofits and small business owners with their online presence – website, blog, social media, e-newsletters, and special fundraising campaigns.
Earlier Parts of My Story
My early career began with achieving my master’s degree in criminology and completing federal training as an investigator. My passion for helping others soon led to my professional certification as a life coach. I also began to embrace my love of writing, both as a freelance writer and as 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.
