I'm a Chicago area based author and freelance writer for magazines, newspapers, websites, health care centers, and businesses. I love to tackle new and interesting writing projects. I discovered my love for interviewing while I was working on my thesis for my Master's degree.
Before writing and while I was working toward my Master's, I worked in the healthcare industry as a manager, which sparked my fascination of health and fitness. I've also worked as a physician recruiter and as a promotion rep for a cardiovascular prevention program.
I have a Master's degree in Communication from Cleveland State University and a BA in International Studies with a Minor in French from Miami University of Ohio.
I started doing triathlons in 2008 with Together We Tri and got hooked. Since then I co-authored a book on triathlon training, Tri The Journey. I went on to run marathons and completed Boston in 2015 and in 2016, re-qualifying both years. I am a certified running coach and co-founder of Reach Your Peak training program.
I recently completed a contemporary young adult novel, The Eden Project and am seeking representation. I'm working on a sequel that will develop the relationship between Sienna and Greyson and their path to hunt down those who want to control future generations.
I am fortunate to have wonderful husband and two teen- aged boys who inspired me to write my first YA novel. Their passion for science, medicine, the environment led me to write The Eden Project.
