My dad was a television anchor when I was growing up, and I loved few things more than hanging around his office with reporters. Even if their stories were only going to make the air for 30 seconds at 11 p.m., I saw how much time and effort went into the information-gathering phase.
Those experiences inspired me to study journalism at the University of Kansas, where I honed in on writing—and got married before my senior year.
I suppose my upbringing in a newsroom has something to do with that...
Since my husband had two years left before graduating from his program, my job prospects felt limited to little Lawerence, Kansas—or so I thought. I began working online and realized there was actually a world of potential.
From my living room, I began working with publications that I once thought required residency in NYC or LA—including an amazing stint as a founding team member with the parenting website Motherly. I now help clients ranging from international brands to soloprenuers as they get clear on brand messaging and confidently cross any writing tasks off that to-do list.
