About

typewriter on text backgroundI believe in the power of words, written, spoken and unspoken. I believe what we write and what we create unleashes who we are, even to our own surprise.

I’m a freelance writer working to establish myself as such. I also work with small businesses and non-profits, with a growing emphasis on minority perspective. Prior to this, I worked in corporate communications and media relations, spent some time as a newspaper reporter, and for a change of pace, served as a case manager for people with developmental disabilities.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I hope you enjoy what you find.

    • Thanks for the idea on the blog post! It was a winding and not always easy course to “get my foot in the door,” so I don’t know where writing about it might take me…it could end being more than one post! Congratulations on getting your masters. That’s a lot of hard work!

  2. Your about me is very thought provoking. It made me more curious about what you have to say. It’s perfect, I love it. 🙂

  3. “I believe in the power of words” is a line I used myself in a graduate school essay about why I wanted to be an English teacher. I like that you mention both the spoken and unspoken. Those unspoken words can be a burden. I enjoy your writing; I have gone through a few posts now and appreciate your thought-provoking words.

      • I finally decided to set up a separate page for awards. In this way it doesn’t process in the same way as a post…at least in my theme. Yet I can still link people and blogs involved. I will say that it has taken me a looong time to answer the questions, so I made my questions super-easy, like “What is your favorite food?”

        • I like you! Part of my hesitation has been answering those questions, then coming up with more, and then of course who do I nominate??? I get too stressed out over something that should be fun, so that’s when I give up!

  7. I love how you put that it’s like Christmas having the internet. Go figure I get a job cutting hair for 8.00 an hour, and have a BA Degree…but it’s close to home less gas and NO head aches.

    • Thank you! I will definitely check that out. I’m away from home now and access to a computer is limited, so please forgive me if it takes a day or two. My phone just doesn’t do it for me when it comes to blogging!
