I'm a writer, photographer, and web content specialist. If you're looking for information on my small business and web consulting work, hop on over to Shorewood Studio.
This space is where I pull together bits and pieces of me from across the internet and share personal writing and photo projects. I write about #momlife, entrepreneurship, and creative living. I photograph my world view, which right now I think about in terms of a tension between my own wanderlust and homebody tendencies. I shoot with Sony mirrorless cameras and my iPhone 6. I do not take on photography clients, but I do write for various publications and submit essays across the web.
I received my undergraduate degree in English and Political Science from Indiana University - Bloomington and my graduate degree in Higher Education Administration from Vanderbilt University. I started my professional life in higher education as a college recruiter and found myself on a mission to improve college websites. In that roundabout way, I grew into web communication consulting before striking out on my own in 2015.
I'm mom to one little boy and one crazy rescue pup. I married my best friend. We all live in Chicago and travel to Michigan frequently. I have a serious caffeine addiction. I run half-marathons semi-frequently and I ran a marathon once (it was a really long run). If it were only up to me I'd live in Florida. I rarely read a book more than once, but I've read To Kill a Mockingbird and East of Eden many times. Rediscovering children's books with my son one of my new favorite things. I'm generally a very happy person, but wait to test that until I've had my morning coffee.
