Before becoming a full-time mom, I spent years as an editor, freelance writer, sports photographer and teacher. I knew that writing was important to me even after Emma came along, so I’ve been finding a way to do both for the past 4.5 years. Balancing a writing career and being a full-time mom isn’t easy. The mom part often wins, but I’m OK with that!
I’m looking forward to 2018 with a focus on my book for CMC Press on hiking with kids in Utah and building my blog presence with tips on adventuring with kids. I hope to share my family experiences on websites like parksandpoints.com and have more content on the washingtonpost.com and other news outlets. When Emma starts school full time in August (sniff), I plan to expand the blog further, put more writing assignments on my calendar and head back into the classroom as a substitute too!
