Will Work For Shoes (Hire Me!)

I’m a features and entertainment print journalist with nearly two decades of experience. I worked in newsrooms on the West Coast, Midwest and South, before settling in the Northeast and becoming a stay-at-home mom and freelance writer.

My stories have appeared in publications including USA Today Weekend magazine, The Seattle Times, The (Louisville) Courier-Journal, The Spokesman-Review and The Yakima Herald Republic.

I’ve written for several USA Today specialty magazines — HOME, Pet Guide, Hispanic Living, Green Living, Go Escape and Best Years — as well as Her Scene magazine, a fashion and lifestyle publication in Louisville, Ky.

You can find me at various online publications, too.

Check out some samples of my work:

Women and Shoes: A Love Affair (USA Today Weekend)

Home Decor Do’s and Don’ts (USA Today Weekend)

How to Reclaim Your Space When the Nest is Empty (

Throw a Holiday Party to Remember (USA Today Weekend)
