I have done a lot of things, but writing has been the common thread that binds them. Writing, of course, has been foundational in my career as journalist, freelance reporter and communicator for the "dark side." It helped me get through graduate school too, and served in all kinds of ways as I dove into community health work. I've done contract work for businesses along the way too, and in the end it's my writing skills that seem to be the best at earning a paycheck, be it for a freelance project or in the form of a non-profit grant. The only place my writing status doesn't get me far is in raising my many kids—in that case a lot of fast-talking and deep breathing are in order. When I have a break I love to walk, read, drink good coffee, travel with husband Matthew and catch up with friends.
