Having spent my formative years writing, I slowly pursued a more realistic career path, obtaining both a B.S. and Master’s degree, and found my way back again. I spent 12 years working in clinical settings, court advocacy, and political work. Yes I said it- I worked in politics, writing and researching legislation. My truest passion has always been creative writing; particularly human interest, fiction and food. I love telling someone else’s story, finding the story or simply creating the story.
My love of fiction sent me on a path of writing my first fiction novel, which is now complete; book one out of three in a series. I have also been part of two research teams. The first was a research study on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) as a memory aide and is in preparation for publication in the EMDR Journal of Psychology. The second is a current research study looking at the affects of childhood trauma and it’s connection with adult obesity.
On a more personal note, I have a love for outdoor sports; rowing, hiking, horse back riding and soccer in particular. I have a strong love of animals and am a big advocate of the World Wildlife Foundation and Rudy’s Rescue Center. I myself have two dogs(labs) and a cat.
I sit on the board of the American Heart Association for Upstate NY. I love life, photography, food and really good wine. I’m married and have a wonderful family. My husband and I love to travel and experience new cultures.
Along with my food blog Digestion Suggestion, I work as the Associate Publisher for Buffalo Healthy Living magazine and as a freelance writer for national publications. I’ve been published in The Culture-ist Magazine, Great Lakes Review, Lake Erie Living (2017), St. Red’s Magazine, Accounting Today, The Buffalo Newspaper, Buffaloeats.org, to name a few.
