About

I am an award-winning freelance journalist, author and content marketing writer.

Through my Business Storytelling Studio, I help health & wellness entrepreneurs grow their businesses by creating irresistible content.

I provide content marketing writing services, including bios, presentations and a wide range of web content.

As a professional question-asker, I combine my comprehensive background in marketing with my skills as an author and an internationally published journalist to help small business entrepreneurs articulate their brand and services in a way that connects and resonates with their target audience. I specialize in overall wellness, including emotional and physical well-beingmaternal and children’s health, and vibrant connection in the digital age.

Through my books and articles, I inspire today’s women and their families to grow happier and stronger through reflective, meaningful connection starting from within.

I am the author of Happy, Healthy & Hyperconnected: Raise a Thoughtful Communicator in a Digital World , a guide for parents interested in nurturing a versatile set of social skills in this generation’s digitally-charmed kids. I’m also the author of Confidently Connected: A Mom’s Guide to a Satisfying Social Life , which helps moms build and sustain a thriving, balanced social life that supports their emotional health.

Described as a “relatable, down-to-earth writer,” my articles appear monthly in international, national and regional publications including Woman’s Day, Vibrant Life, The Costco Connection, Parents, Calgary’s Child, San Diego Family and Kansas City Parent.

I earned my B.A. in speech communication and a minor in journalism from Texas A&M University. I went on to earn my master’s degree in communication at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

When I’m not writing, I’m centered in my active family which includes my two adolescent sons, my golf-impassioned husband and a pair of sweet rescue dogs. My family and I reside in the lovely Kansas City metro area, home of world-class barbecue, beautiful fountains and legendary jazz.
