The feeling of needing to do it all is suffocating.

But doing it all? It’s a myth.

Here’s what you actually need to do: Find out what lights you up. Do those things. Leave “it all” behind.


So here’s what I do:

Create clear, smart content small business owners and solopreneurs

I apply my background in small business marketing strategy, my degrees in English & Communications and years of honing my writing skills to help you tell your story in a way that sounds like you, is meaningful to your audience and supports your business goals.

Oh, and I especially love working with mompreneurs.

write. Just…write.

I’m a seeker. I want meaning and purpose. I want a vibrant life. Writing has always been my way to understand myself, the world, and beyond.

Read my writing that’s been published elsewhere, or browse my writing published here on my website.


And here's how I got here:

For ten years, I wrote copy + developed marketing strategies for clients from Fortune 500 companies to small mom & pop businesses. It was a good career, and I loved spending my days writing & strategizing, but it never felt quite right, like a shoe that was just a bit too small.

Then I gave birth to my daughter and everything changed.

Becoming a mom was not an easy transition for me. I struggled through the first eight weeks of my daughter’s life like a bear that was woken from hibernation too early and was REALLY pissed off about it. Coffee didn’t even begin to touch the exhaustion. I cried a lot. And even though I was probably not in a place to make life-altering decisions, I was certain that I did not want to leave my daughter to go back to a job that made me miserable.

So I didn’t.

Doesn’t that make it sound so simple? It wasn’t. I was scared. SO. FREAKED. OUT. But…

Fast-forward to now and I have found a life that I never imagined when I called my boss to say I wasn’t coming back.

Back then, it didn’t fully occur to me that I could build my own business. I didn’t give myself permission to write.

Back then, I didn’t know I’d face soul-deep struggles over the next few years and find myself breaking down, completely lost and uncertain of how to find myself.

And I didn’t know that I would find my way through all of it, and emerge ready to use my words to guide others to light it up in the ways I know they can.

A little more about me...

3FamilyPhotosSummer2016-294a.png
  • I have a daughter (age 5), son (3), and a very supportive husband. Holy guacamole I am filled with gratitude for how they have shaped my journey in life.

  • I fully embrace my nerdy side and am fine with admitting that curling up with a good self-help or spirituality book can meet my criteria for a great Saturday night.

  • I love making things. This might mean a little art project for my house, some homemade lip balm or a new recipe, depending on my mood.

  • I love seeing the world through the eyes of my kids. They have given me a new perspective on everything from birds (how fascinating!) to self image (let’s all just love ourselves & do the best we can).

  • I don’t strive to be better than anyone else, but I always work hard to be better than my previous self.

  • I’m a writer. A seeker. A deep thinker. And I love to laugh at myself.
