Hello there!

I'm a freelance writer and editor based in Boulder, Colo., mainly covering design, fitness, kid stuff, project management, and small business. My husband calls me the Swiss Army Knife of journalism: My work has appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine; Prevention; WWD; Denver's 5280; and many trade magazines and journalism blogs. Of late, my byline can regularly be seen in Club Industry, where I cover issues relevant to health-club owners; Denver's 5280 and its shelter publication, 5280 Home; 5280.com's Kids & Family blog; and PM Network, an internationally distributed trade magazine for project managers.

As a copy editor, my red pen touches down on books, magazines both print and online, and newsletters. I am the lead copy editor for Phoenix-based Bigfish Publications, where I oversee each of its four trade magazines; and Denver's Clyfford Still Museum makes use of my expertise for its award-winning quarterly newsletter, Words on Paper.

Below are a few of my most-recent pieces. Please visit the Hire Me page for more on how we can work together.

Having this career means I get to be a student of anything and everything, and I couldn't ask for more. Thank you for your interest in my work.
