I am twenty-five years young, with an educational background in psychology and neuroscience. Although I love science based topics, my need for creativity is much greater. I'm extremely passionate, knowledgable, and driven. I worked in the food industry for eight years. While managing a team, I gained; communication skills, experience, and problem solving skills. I apply those skills to my writing career, effectively working with clients. I am currently writing a book regarding sustainability, in which I plan to self-publish.

I am open to a wide range of topics, and absolutely adore what I do.
I'm an attorney-turned business academic, who can turn some pretty arcane stuff into lively readable copy. I practiced law in the employee benefits field before turning to teaching at a community college. I teach a wide variety of courses including English, Business Law and American government. My first love is writing, though. My experience makes it possible for me to wade into some technical areas others might find daunting and drag out the treasure. It's not good writing, no matter how scholarly, if no one wants to read it. I've published in print in national journals like Compensation and Benefits Management and Benefits Quarterly. My online portfolio includes blogs, white papers and research pieces on legal and educational topics, but I'm always up for a new challenge.
