EDUCATION

I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. I wrote my first stories on the lined journal paper, then typed and stored them on floppy disks on my dad’s first computer, and my passion for writing and wordsmithing continued into my adulthood. My first paid job was as a freelance journalist, back when print newspapers were a thing, and my first full-time career was as an Executive Editor of a monthly magazine. As Executive Editor, I oversaw the entire publication process from conceptualization to print and distribution. I wrote articles myself, and I managed a team of about 25 writers, some of them I began to informally coach. I discovered my passion for helping others find their voice through written expression.

After grad school, I began teaching at Universities as an Adjunct Professor. My first and longest-running course was a Writing course for adult students returning to college late in life to complete their college degree. For 12 years, I have taught English Exposition, introduction to Writing, Research Writing, Informative Writing, Speech and Rhetoric, and Business Writing courses at three Universities in Southern California and Oregon.

I have written and presented more than a dozen academic papers at national conferences, and I won an award for a research paper in my field of expertise. I have completed an academic dissertation for Ph. D., which is currently under review for publication with an educational publisher, and I have a book coming out in Summer/Autumn 2022.

EXPERIENCE

I have helped writers as an Academic Coach for ten years, working on short-term and long-term projects with creative writers, biographers, academics, students, professors, and others. I helped write and edit a biographical book entitled “Hole in the Head.” I also coached a writer who published her blogs about her journey through breast cancer in book form. I have worked with adult students in formal and informal settings on individual or group writing projects.

I have been in and around writing for so long that it is a part of who I am. Through my experience working with students and clients for nearly two decades, I believe that every person has an important story, perspective, or insight to share. With the internet and social media occupying so much space, it isn't easy to hear all the voices. Writing and publishing a book is a way of standing apart from the masses. Only a relative few people will do the work to write and finish their book. Let me help you be one of those people!
