In 2004 I moved from Columbus, Ohio, to Wilmington, North Carolina, to begin my education career and escape oppressively long winters. My first day as an English teacher at John T. Hoggard High School was delayed by the landfall of Hurricane Charlie, which fortunately caused little damage and made great story-telling material.
Today I am a Career Readiness instructor at Cape Fear Community College, where I help unemployed and underemployed community members seek, acquire and retain gainful employment. I'm also the associate editor of Wrightsville Beach Magazine, an award-winning local publication.
My extensive writing experience includes both print and web. One of my favorites was an ongoing stint as a theater critic for Encore, Wilmington's alternative magazine. I have assumed multiple aliases for various ghostwriting projects, and love editing full-length manuscripts for self-published novelists. I find this editing process particularly rewarding and am honored to have earned the trust of many fantastic, hard-working writers.
When I'm not furiously typing away at my computer or wielding a red pen, you'll find me playing with my dog, Tiesto, hunting for sea glass and sharks' teeth on local beaches, volunteering for the Wrightsville Beach Sea Turtle Project and practicing yoga.
