I grew up in Georgia, went to college in Alabama, and now 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 (literally) running around town or making my Mom’s renowned sourdough bread. The recipe makes two loaves, so each week we keep one and give the other away.

Good bread, like good writing, is too wonderful to keep to ourselves.

Weird fact: I took apart doorknobs as a kid.

It’s so odd, I know. But it actually makes a lot of sense if you look at any of the personality tests I’ve taken. I’ve filled out a few over the years, and they agree on a few things:

1. I’m a total information nerd. 

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

like research. I get jazzed when I’m working on your topic and come across a 30 page ebook or massive resource. I find a comfy chair and cup of tea and everything. I’ve always loved learning, and I get excited to work on projects that take me into new territories.

2. I’m pretty good at finding and resolving problems.

There’s usually room for improvement. I’ll quickly find the gaps and suggest ideas that help you level up. Fair warning: I don’t stop at simply thinking about a solution. I’m big on implementing it in a way that works over time. Because what’s the use of knowing the answer if it doesn’t actually help you?

These are two of my biggest strengths (in addition to writing) and they’re skills I bring with me to every project. Frankly, I wouldn’t know how to leave them behind!

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

Whew. Still need more info?

Lucky for you, we live in the age of social media. Check out Twitter or Instagram for my latest thoughts and adventures. Or hop over to LinkedIn for a semi-thorough work history.

While you’re doing some light stalking (we’ll call it research), ping me and say hello! I’d love to connect.
