Smart + Funny
I'm a magazine writer with a lot of subtitles: journalist, essayist, perfumer, translator, profiler, mom. I've got traditional reporting chops and am a recognized social media maven in Oregon, serving media editors, producers and their readers with tight, engaging lifestyle pieces, profiles and stories that entertain and inform. My essays and columns grace the pages of magazines across the nation.
I live in McMinnville, OR, with my very understanding husband and two sons, where I am writing a funny memoir about connecting to place through scent.
