From a young age I've always loved creative projects, writing, drawing, painting, and story-telling (in various ways :). Picture books have always been an important presence in my life, as I've carried my favorites with me through college, cross-country moves, to family life. Now I'm on a journey writing my own!
While my creativity has been ever-evolving, I’ve been blessed with an awesome career in higher education focused on leadership, gender equity, social justice, and student development. This work continues to give me purpose and inspiration. It's what inspired me to start writing for children in the first place (along with the children in my life).
Fun facts about me: I love quotes, am super grateful for my (past and future) travels, which include circumnavigating the globe on a floating university, and finally anything teal or turquoise brings an immediate smile to my face.
