I love words and their power! As a result, I earned a PhD in English from Northwestern University and became a writing/literature professor at University of Arizona. The most fulfilling part of my work was helping my students realize that, yes, they could write their essays and papers!--even when they had been convinced they couldn't. I ended up teaching and tutoring many different kinds of writing, so I am able to "speak" business, legal, academic, and even creative writing. It's wonderful that I can now help students via computer, and am no longer limited to just in-person work. Writing is fundamental to almost everything in life, and it's my privilege to help students develop confidence in their own writing abilities.

I love to travel extensively, and for part of my career I worked as a travel writer. I also read constantly and when I'm not reading, I'm out hiking.
