"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will."

This is professional me

Combining a decade of experience in corporate communications with a master’s degree from Purdue University's Brian Lamb School of Communication, I offer a unique blend of communication theory and real-world practice. I strive to design and implement unique, results-driven communications and media campaigns to reach organizational goals. Whether that means placement in media outlets, better engagement with employees or to promote clear, concise and meaningful messages, I have a servant’s heart and work toward helping others first.

This is personal me: I read and write fiction. What I read usually translates into a book review; what I write usually ends up here - or in a creased notebook stuffed into my writing desk, never to see the light of day.

I read deeply and diversely. My favorite books are so different yet so similar; each one evokes a powerful, internal reaction in my soul. Characters, more so than plot, can make or break the reading experience for me, and I seek out and write stories that immerse the reader in different lived experiences, cultures, time periods, and yes, even alternate worlds.
