I have been writing since I learned my ABC’s as a preschooler. I finally committed to pursuing a freelance writing career in August of 2011, leaving behind a job with a steady salary, paid time off and health insurance. It was a scary leap with lots of hard work, but I don’t regret following my passion to write.
I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction. My graduate work included focuses in early childhood education, special education and infant and toddler development. I worked in early childhood education for many years. I have been a preschool teacher and childcare center director. I have also acted as a mentor, trainer, resource and advocate to childcare workers, children and families. I am an adjunct instructor in the early childhood education department of the local state college.
My favorite topics to write about are those pertaining to children and families, however, I am a quick research and comfortable writing about most any subject.
