Welcome! I’m a freelance writer and administrative consultant based in the Madison, WI area.

Writing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. How many third graders do you know who write research papers for fun during summer vacation? Yeah…that was me. I’ve blogged off and on since 2002, have written articles for local newspapers and have done a variety of business-related writing and editing including press releases, website copy, client communications, marketing materials, social media marketing posts and procedural manuals.

I also have many years of experience providing administrative support to small businesses and entrepreneurs in a wide variety of fields including software development and sales, publishing, entertainment, realty, direct sales, survey research, accounting and retail. Working with small businesses owners and entrepreneurs to help their businesses grow and thrive is a challenge I truly enjoy.

I was born and raised in Madison, WI and am the oldest of nine (yes, nine!) children. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a BA in English. While in college, I spent a semester abroad at St. Mary’s University College, London. The concept of lifelong learning is something I deeply value, both personally and professionally.

My husband and I currently live in the country with our three kids and a dog.  Our life is busy, fun, challenging and rewarding in turns. Aside from family and friends, books and music are my two great loves in life. I have far more interests than any one person should ever be allowed, and dabble in the simplicity movement, hiking, gardening, herbal medicine, cooking from scratch whenever possible, DIY household and personal care products, yoga, crochet and knitting, among other things. I love spending time outside, find happiness in little things, and am always striving to live my life with faith, grace and mindfulness.
