About me, outside of work:
I became a freelance writer in 2009 after I left my job at the Erie Times-News so I could stay home with my daughter. Almost exactly two years later my husband and I welcomed our son into the family. Our kids are now 6 and 4.
I grew up in Colorado and Cincinnati, but have also lived in Kentucky, Hawaii, Indiana and Kansas. I moved to Erie, Pa., in 2001 to take a job with the Erie Times-News. I didn't know a soul in town, but quickly fell in love with Lake Erie, the local beaches, and the wonderful town and people. Then I married a local boy and began to put down real roots. I'm proud to call Erie home and love that with the help of technology I can write freelance for anyone, anywhere!
