Professional Experience

I have been a freelance writer for magazines and newspapers for the past ten years. My areas of expertise includes beauty, health and fitness, weddings, luxury lifestyles, resorts and spas, and home and garden. I have chronicled fashion designers, hairstylists, and artists throughout the years, and have written extensively for luxury lifestyle publications covering resorts and spas, and desirable travel locales. My passion for healthy living and luxury comes through in clear and concise writing designed to keep the readers interest, with quick and catchy copy throughout each piece I write. As a yoga teacher, I have a wealth of information available about fitness, health and spirituality.
