Ever since reading Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew series in the third grade, I wanted to be a writer. It took 30 years and a dramatic experience for that dream to become a reality. When our first son, Ben, was born with an unknown genetic disorder, writing became a way for me to find support, share experiences and work through the emotions of raising a child with special needs.
In 2012, I started writing professionally about travel, business and parenting. My stories have been published in Good Housekeeping, Business North Carolina, AAA Carolinas GO Magazine, Ballantyne Magazine, Charlotte magazine, Charlotte Observer and SouthPark Magazine.
