When I was 10 years old I asked Santa (heck yes, I still believed) for a typewriter. I wanted to write stories, report our daily life and document.
Fast forward a few years and I found myself smack dab in the middle of Michigan at a very small school (in the middle of a corn field) – studying journalism and business.
My dreams were to report big things, cover important stories and hopefully make an impact in some way, shape or form.
After college I spent a number of years reporting and writing for the United States Army at a small newspaper in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. It was during my time at the newspaper where my love for writing grew even stronger, I learned the art of photography and oh yes, I met my sweet husband. (He actually read one of my articles and sent me an email about it.)
Over the course of the last several years – I have been home with our bright and spunky son and have run a few of my own businesses – but in it all – my love, passion and complete appreciation for writing has remained.
My dreams remain the same – to report big things, cover important stories and to hopefully make an impact somehow…some way with my writing.
