I began working as a freelance writer and photographer in 1999 when I moved to Colorado. My work has allowed me to travel around the world from Ibiza, Spain to Sun Valley, Idaho.
I love writing service oriented pieces, listicles, profiles and occasionally about myself. Some outlets I have written for include The Washington Post, REI, Colorado Parent, Boulder Magazine, mommynearest.com, parksandpoints.com, Running Times and Triathlete.
I am the author of The Best Utah Children’s Hikes and the forthcoming author of The Best Cortez and Mesa Verde Hikes. I spent two years as editor of the now defunct Road Magazine and tri-magazine.
In addition to freelance writing, I am also a teacher. I live in Erie, CO with my husband AJ and daughter Emma.
