I have worked as a full-time editor and freelance writer for a variety of print and online publications, ranging from business to lifestyle. I have in-depth research and interviewing experience and am always looking for unique and engaging stories to report on. I’ve also worked with executives across industries to shape and edit their writing to showcase their expertise and industry leadership.

Personally, I am a traveler, runner, and food enthusiast who's always seeking new experiences. I'm also a military wife and a rescue dog mom.

I hold a graduate degree in communications and media studies from Eastern New Mexico University and a bachelor's degree in journalism from Metropolitan State University of Denver.
