About Me



I'm a well-published writer and editor with more than 15 years experience contributing articles about destination travel, hotels, health and fitness, and real estate to print and online media sources. 

I'm an avid skier, hiker, and all-around fitness fanatic with a sense of adventure and a passion for travel. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and English from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale and a Masters in Writing and Publishing from Emerson College in Boston.



Over the years I've served as writer, editor, photographer, and content specialist, contributing to print and online media sources as well as working as part of a marketing team.

I've written annual reports, telemarketing scripts, copy for posters and meetings, and advertising copy for a major government agency.

I served as a professional hotel reviewer and photographer for Oyster.com, a TripAdvisor company, and have written for several other websites, including Reader's Digest, The Healthy, Jetsetter, Passported, Ralph Lauren, Forbes, and Daily Candy.

For many years, I worked as an editor and writer for Robb Report, contributing a variety of articles about luxury travel, adventure travel, and vacation home real estate and design. 

Other publications include Fitness, Self, Robb Report Home & Style, Cowboys and Indians,  Ski's Mountain Home, Vacation Homes, and Vertical Living.
