I have nearly a decade of experience working for Northern Virginia Magazine, covering everything from food to fashion. My experience also includes work in public relations and marketing for the magazine as well as the nonprofit Second Genesis. Before that, I graduated from Penn State University with a B.A. in Advertising/Public Relations.As you'll see in my portfolio, style—in particular, fashion and beauty—is one of my favorite arenas. Health is another passion.While I have taken time off from professional writing and editing to watch my daughters grow up—and build a Beautycounter business—my love of writing/editing has never waned. I'm anxious to get back in the game and hit the ground running.👇 See below for my portfolio. 👇


Now in my mid-40s, I am a busy mom with two incredible daughters. In the winter, you'll find us on the basketball court; spring and fall, on the soccer field and volleyball court; and in the summer, at the pool, beach or on Reston, VA's lakes.Between my husband's busy career/travel, and my girls' sports and social calendars, a lot of my time is spent cooking, laundering, shopping and acting as chauffeur. Truth is I wouldn't have it any other way. Peloton workouts, Colleen Hoover page-turners, and podcasts like "Lipstick on the Rim" and "The Mel Robbins Podcast," help keep me calm among the chaos.Add in a few travel adventures, plenty of sunshine, and some part-time writing/editing, and this mama is beyond content. My latest writing can be found at I also am a Brand Advocate for the clean beauty brand Beautycounter, set to re-launch in late 2024.


If you'd like to work together, I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you
