Thank you for your interest in working with me! I’ve been writing publicly online since 2005 and have over 20 years experience in creative writing and marketing copy for the music industry, non-profits, and small businesses (including three of my own!).
I specialize in non-fiction storytelling, faith-based essays, travel memoirs, interviews, and biographies. I’m currently a contributing writer on Tsh Oxenreider’s community-driven website, The Art of Simple, and a monthly co-host of the Simple podcast (be sure to check out episode 140 where I share the story behind Kindred Farm).
For 12 years, I also documented life and shared my journey towards simpler living on my blog, Dreams of Simple Life.
“You may not be the first person to say it, but your saying it might be the first time someone hears it. So we need you to say it.” I heard this from a friend once, and I’ve never forgotten it. I'm here to share my story, in hopes of helping others connect with their own stories.
I know the struggle and aching beauty of new motherhood.
I’ve felt the tension of trying to juggle life with young children and work.
I understand the intense challenges and the blood, sweat, and tears it takes to start businesses and keep them alive.
I know what it’s like to live in a big concrete city, aching for green and beauty, and to uncover it in every possible face and place.
And I know what it’s like to leave that city and work harder than ever before to (literally) cultivate new soil.
I get it.
I share the moments that have shaped, challenged, and changed me in hopes that my readers will be inspired to cultivate lives of beauty, simplicity, freedom and adventure...right where they are. We’re in this together!
