A lifelong logophile, book fanatic, and lover of the arts, I now serve as an editor and creativity coach at The Editor Garden. As a freelance editor, I've worked on everything from newsletters and web copy to memoirs and manuals. My freelance writing has appeared in The Mississippi Review online, the One Teen Story blog, Folio Weekly, and other publications.
As an educator and adjunct professor, I've taught, tutored, and coached students from kindergarten through doctoral studies in creative writing, grammar, test-taking, and essay skills. I've also served as a copy writer and editor, as well as a research librarian, at both public and university libraries.
An active member of SCBWI, the Editorial Freelancers
Association, and the Creative Coaching Association, I hold a BA in English from the University of Connecticut and an MLS from Simmons College with a concentration in Children's Literature.
Currently, I am drafting a novel for middle graders that features three magical endangered wood storks and two very different kids with very big hearts.
