trained as an historian, with over 17 years of experience teaching in higher education, I am now working as a free-lance writer, copy editor, and educator.
Through my background in academia, I have experience with leadership roles in a variety of profesisonal settings. Institutional and departmental program implementation and assessment, classroom management, grant writing and management, leadership on institutional committees, student oversight, peer review and oversight, and professional written and oral presentations are all a necessity in academia. I have experience developing, implementing, managing and evaluating complex budgets and programs, have extensive event management and planning experience, quickly prioritze tasks and delegate when necessary. I have extensive copy editing experience on a variety of levels. I have advertising/sponsorship experience as well as fundraising and retention skills. I am a published writer of both academic and creative works. I am highly motivated, detail oriented, persistent, and dedicated.

Trained as a historian, I am also a lifelong writer of fiction and poetry. I have traveled widely and spend most of my free time devouring books.
I live in Erie, PA with my husband David and our 5 cats and an elderly poodle. We call our house the menagerie, and I simply love the chaos that so many pets provide. I am a teacher at heart, and continually find ways to help others through my work, whether inside a classroom or not. I am currently running a Weekly Writing Group at a local bookstore, working on several of my own projects, and doing freelance writing for Jameson Publishing.
I am a true Great Lakes girl, born on Lake Superior, raised on the shores of Lake Michigan, and then migrating to Lake Erie.
