Cheers! And welcome to my website. You’re probably on this page to learn a bit more about me ~ and I’m happy to oblige.

First and foremost, I’m a Mom, which loosely translates into CEO, Chauffeur, International Bank of Cash, and Fixer of All Things. I cherish the title and wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m also an award-winning writer and festival-accepted director, or as my former editor would say, “You’re just a writer ~ no award-winning necessary!”

I’ve been expressing myself through stories since I was old enough to coo. My Mom loves to recount how she would watch me in the rear-view mirror, all nestled into my car seat, as I made all kinds of faces and talked to myself; I was totally entertained. As soon as I could write, I started putting that imagination to good use as a storyteller and never looked back.

I’m currently authoring a novel and memoir while attending Ashland University for my Master’s in Fine Arts degree. I’m also in pre-production for two of my films, The Third Period, a feature-length hockey film, and Nellie, a suspenseful short film. If you’d like to see some of my video work, you can visit my Vimeo page and get a feel for my style. If you’ve got questions or you’d like to work with me, please email me at

During the day, I am so lucky to serve families from all over the world as the Communications Manager for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. This incredible organization helps families with sick children have a place to live, to eat, and to be normal during one of the most difficult times of their lives. Feel free to make a donation here and support this incredible nonprofit.

Morning is my favorite time of  day and coffee is my drink of choice ~ I’d love to chat!
