Before becoming a full-time mom, I spent years as an editor, freelance writer, sports photographer and as a 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, building my blog presence, mixing family experiences with factual details in writing for websites like parksandpoints.com and writing a few more pieces for the washingtonpost.com and other new 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!
