I love talking with people who entrust me with their story. It's an honor to craft it into a tribute to the challenge they've overcome, or the meaning they've added to other people's lives.

A rural elementary schoolteacher who defied death after a brain aneurysm ruptured, then accidentally ran a half-marathon.

A physical therapist for children with cancer who pulled off a final fishing trip for one of his patients, inside the hospital.

Some stories, like some people, tend to be more subtle. But each has a reason to be told. I want to share as many as I can.

I enjoy freelance writing for a website that spotlights business news in the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, area. I spent more than a year and a half writing stories about patients, leaders, physicians and other employees of Sanford Health, a sizable rural health care system, for the organization's news website. And before that, I had an extensive background in editing, for print and digital, at South Dakota's largest daily newspaper, the Argus Leader.

Now I'm eager to find a new adventure in storytelling.
