"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 for the real estate development and 55+ market, whether I'm writing about housing, finances, long-term care or the journey of aging itself.

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 – writing about housing, finance, retirement or life's journey itself. 

My experience

I’ve written for newspapers, magazines, trade publications and websites on topics that range from housing 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 never missed a deadline, work hard to meet expectations and am extremely easy to work with. I can create my own topics or work with you on yours, including research and interviews and making sure the focus is always on your targeted readers and audience.

I've been published in

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