I'm a transplant, originally from vastly underrated Central New York. I make jokes about the area, but it was a great place to grow up. In fact, I loved it so much that I spent most of my adult life working and traveling abroad as an English teacher. I lived in China, Mexico, Honduras, Thailand, and now Poland. But, I love to visit home and I'm always happy to go back and see friends and family.

My childhood dream is to publish a book someday. My mother asked me if I had a back-up plan. For the past several years, I've been hard at work on rewrites and creating new worlds and characters.

When I am not working or writing, I enjoy experimenting in my kitchen and garden, exercising, taking long walks or drives with my husband, traveling, and crafting.


I got my start as a copy editor at a now-defunct local newspaper in the Buffalo area. After I left, I let a friend convince me to try teaching English abroad, which I ended up doing for 10 years. I quit teaching in 2021 and went back to what I love doing: writing.

Since then, I've helped clients find their voice in blogs and on social media platforms. I also write food news and cooking articles, and creative non-fiction.
