“Writer of things” is pretty general so I thought I’d go into a bit more detail about myself and the career I’ve made of writing.
I work full time as a Senior Content Strategist for a software company in the healthcare space (you can go find those details on LinkedIn).
When I’m not working full time (or parenting a preschooler with the help of my writer husband), I try to write about other things: fiction, non-fiction, how-to guides, children’s stories, short stories, long ranty emails and one in-progress novel, to date.
Besides writing, my interests include running, drinking lots of coffee, dance parties in the living room with my son, watching quality HBO shows, drinking wine with girlfriends, walking the dog and cuddling with him on the couch, and reciting the words to any and all Disney movies.
Recently, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (June 2016) and spent six months going through treatment. As of December 20, 2016, I am in complete remission, but you’ll still find I have quite a few posts on the topic of having and dealing with cancer…and now the art of being a cancer survivor.
