I’m a mom of three working from home (and around town) as a freelance writer, editor and social media consultant. On any given day I might be researching childhood bullying, scraping pizza sauce from my counter, tweeting about the latest breastfeeding controversy, and packing swimming gear while compiling pitches in my head. I love life this way.
The beauty of being a parenting writer is that you can write about anything – because everything that affects us affects our children. So while occasionally I reel off some potty training advice, I prefer speaking and writing on issues of politics, social justice, marketing and mass media, feminism and environmentalism.
I’m a go-to gal; people look to me for advice and solutions and typically they’re pleased with what I give them. I believe in volunteerism and service to your community whether that community be your insular family or the world at large. I appreciate beauty in all things and all people. I love a good joke. I savour coffee. I enjoy a good book. I wrangle words into content and content into understandable chunks of words. I thrive on connection to people and ideas.
