Thanks for stopping by! For as long as I can remember, not a day goes by that I haven't enjoyed telling or listening to a good story. Stories are what define us — they make us human, they keep us present and help us learn. That’s why I feel so fortunate to do what I love as a writer and continue to tell stories and inform readers in a variety of formats.
My Background: I’ve written hundreds and hundreds of stories in the form of nonfiction articles and content marketing pieces. I’ve also authored or co-authored eight books: The Dog Lover’s Companion to Philadelphia; Philadelphia: A Photographic Portrait; Bayada: 40 Years of Compassion, Excellence and Reliability. I'm co-author of the best-selling Growing Friendships: A Kids’ Guide to Making and Keeping Friends, as well as co-author of the American Red Cross: Dog First Aid and American Red Cross Cat First Aid books, The 7 Steps to Take in the Face of Dementia (to come 2022) and Growing Feelings: A Kids’ Guide to Dealing with Emotions About Friends and Other Kids (to come 2023).
Plus, I'm experienced working on the other side of the computer screen: as an editor of articles, video content and books. I also work as an editorial coach/consultant. And I earned my five-course specialist certificate in Content Strategy from Northwestern University.
Why Work with Me: I’m an accomplished writer and editor with loads of experience. That means I know how to reliably deliver accurate, engaging content on time and within budget. I am well versed in journalism as well as writing and editing content marketing pieces. I'm also flexible, have a healthy sense of humor and love to laugh. You can see my full client list and read some testimonials while you're here.
Why I Love What I Do: I love writing, period. And I believe my enthusiasm comes through in my writing where the tone is friendly, informative and down-to-earth. Some of my favorite topics include pets, health care, health/medicine, amazing accomplishments of people with disabilities, the great city of Philadelphia, as well as help for children and families.
