Hey, thanks for stopping by Works in Progress. I’m a writer and editor with a day job and a teenage daughter. We are into girlpower, music, and fitness. She loves Broadway musicals, while I’m an ’80s-movie fan. I introduced her to Bon Jovi; she introduced me to Snapchat.

I earned a journalism degree in the early ’90s (yeah, I watched grunge kill my beloved hair rock) and spent nearly 20 years in the newspaper business as a sports writer, an assistant sports editor, a news copy editor, and a page designer. I’ve been published in magazines like Parenting, Volta Voices, Healthy Children, VisitSouth.com, regional newspapers, and parenting publications across North America – just click the tabs above to see my work.

I also share my thoughts on books, feminism, sports, music, writing, and being mom to my bionic teen on my Sound Check Mama blog.

Click around the site and holler if you have any questions about my writing, editing or design services. And please let me know if you like something you read.
