I grew up in Georgia, went to college in Alabama, and live on a mountain in Chattanooga, TN. I spend a lot of time there with my husband, Ben (that’s him on the right), who moonlights as my CFO.

When I’m not working with words, I’m running around town or making stuff in the kitchen. Current projects include compost, refinishing estate sale finds, and house plants (some of them are still alive!).

Weird fact: I took apart doorknobs as a kid.

I know. But it makes a ton of sense if you look at the personality tests I’ve taken. They agree on two things:

1. I’m excellent at gathering information.

That’s an 8 out of 10, by the way, on the Kolbe Index.
Input, Intellection, and Learner are all in my top five strengths, according to Strengths Finders.

like research. I love learning, and I get excited to work on projects that take me into new territory. Clients and readers frequently say things like, “wow, this is really well researched,” and, “I was impressed with the examples you dug up.”

2. I’m good at pinpointing and resolving problems.

For better or worse, I’m good at noticing what’s broke. For you, that means I’ll quickly find gaps in the content you’re working on. But I don’t stop at noting the problem. I’m big on processes and solutions, too. Because what’s the use of knowing the problem if you don’t solve it?

In addition to writing, research and problem-solving are two of my biggest strengths. They’re skills I bring with me to every project and, frankly, I wouldn’t know how to leave them behind since they’re a core part of me.

I won’t take apart any of your doorknobs, though. I promise.
