I like to think that I wear many hats; communications student, freelance writer, and mother are only a few of the many jobs that I enjoy juggling on a day to day basis.
I've always had a strong passion for writing, whatever the topic may be. I love adding my own twists to a story and creating more depth and understanding for my readers to dive into.
