I’m a writer and editor for hire.
Born and raised in NYC, I now live on a 42’ sailboat in Seattle with my husband and shipmate, Dan. When the gray and rain of Seattle become too dreary, we escape to Isla Taboga, Panama, for a few months each winter.
Once upon a time, I worked in theater, both as an actor (once auditioning for Paul Newman) and in the administrative end of the business. For three life-changing years, I worked with homeless and runaway teens at Covenant House, a shelter in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. After moving to Seattle, I worked for the University of Washington Medical Center running cancer support programs and writing a monthly newsletter.
Writing always factored into my work and personal life but it wasn’t until I left my last full-time job that I was free to turn full-time to writing and editing.
Once I took that leap of faith, things took off. I landed a gig almost immediately writing a quarterly newsletter for the University of Washington’s Spanish Department. I found a niche in the newsletter writing world and also wrote a monthly newsletter for a Seattle dance and movement studio.
I have been a columnist for a local newspaper for five years and have a loyal following. My personal writing has appeared in anthologies, blogs and internet publications. Individuals contract me for writing and editing projects. No matter what the project, when I am working I am happy. I love helping clients find their way on the page as much as I do working on my own material.
As a writer and editor, my main job is to help individuals and companies express their authentic voices.
