Freelance Writer specializing in Caring for our Children, our Parents, our Bodies, our Minds.
Experience and Passion
For 17 years I've been doing a job I love: empowering readers by writing articles that educate and motivate.
I am a stickler for accuracy. I don't just find the quickest sources; I find the best ones. And when I interview, I establish that instant intimacy so important to securing strong quotations and personal anecdotes.
I write frequently on topics related to health, parenting and older adults. Quick turnarounds are my specialty, thanks to a decade spent in the daily newspaper world. My extensive Web experience has taught me the importance of packing lots of information into small spaces.
I am one of the top read writers on iVillage.com with more than 2.5 million page views per year. I am also a regular contributor to AARP Bulletin, the second-largest circulation publication in the U.S. Regarding my work, editors have called it, "fun to read," "interesting, relevant and well written" and "you have been a dream to work with. I hope this is the first of many projects together." Client recommendations can be viewed on my Linked In page.
My byline can be found in O, the Oprah Magazine; AARP Bulletin; Prevention.com; American Baby; Kiwi; iVillage.com and EverydayHealth.com, among others. Check out my Clips by Publication or Clips by Topic for examples of my work.

Solid reporting creates the framework for good writing.
My other guiding principles include:
- Deadlines are sacred.
- Editing is best when it's collaborative.
- The reader must be respected.
- All reporting must be fair, accurate and balanced.
I am ready to take on your next editorial project, be it breaking news, a Web slideshow or an in-depth, multi-sourced investigative feature.
