Professional/Personal Overview
  As an experienced, highly motivated communications specialist, journalist, author and presenter, I produce writing that engages, informs, and moves the reader to action. I’m a meticulous researcher, personable interviewer, and deadline driven. And, I’m always interested in crafting copy that hooks the reader.

For ten years, I worked for Time magazine as a correspondent, finding and covering stories ranging from polygamy to science to the Elizabeth Smart abduction. I currently write a lot of in-depth profiles, health sciences/medical-oriented pieces, and strong human-interest stories. I’ve also indulged in writing outdoor recreation/destination articles.

In marketing communications, I can oversee or collaborate on projects. I've created strategic content for a variety of marketing materials.

I'm the co-author and the presenter of the book and traveling photo-story exhibit, "what I thought I saw" and the founder of the photo-story exhibit, "Exit by Text."
