"The difference between the almost-right word and the right word is the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning."




I love finding those words and putting them in the right order, whether I'm writing about housing, finances, long-term care or the journey of aging itself.

If you're looking for a freelance writer, my experience goes back more than 10 years. My focus is always on telling a story specifically targeted for your readers and audience.

I'm extremely easy to work with and I've never missed a deadline. I can create my own topics or write on yours and my articles are well researched.

I've never missed a deadline and am extremely easy to work with. I don't require any hand-holding but appreciate an editor's comments. I work hard to meet your and your readers' expectations.

Everyone has a story…

and here’s mine

As one of almost 77 million baby boomers (and not to mention the only girl in a family with six brothers) I’ve always had to carve out my own niche. Growing up in a house that our writer-at-heart dad built, I haven’t strayed far. 

My experience

I’ve written for newspapers, magazines, trade publications and websites on topics that range from retirement to transportation options to discovering how to make this stage in life count.  I have a degree in journalism, as well as an MBA and a Master’s degree in urban planning.


I've been published in

  • Huffington Post
  • PBS' Next Avenue
  • Professional Builder
  • The Denver Post
