All About Me

After years spent doing administrative work and field spares analysis (whatever that is), I found my true calling one day after accepting an internship at Texas Monthly magazine. I was officially hired on soon after and remained on staff for nearly a decade, working my way up from editorial assistant to assistant editor. From there I moved to American Way, the inflight magazine of American Airlines, where as a senior-level editor I assigned, edited, and wrote all variety of stories, including the travel features and celebrity cover profile. I was with American Way for nine years, and while the work was great, one of my favorite parts of the job was the free flight benefits! I freelanced for several years after that before becoming the editor of a bimonthly travel magazine called Group Travel Planet. During the almost two years I served as editor, the magazine won several national awards, including most improved magazine. Today, in addition to doing proofreading, copyediting, and writing for a stable of clients big and small, I am the editor-in-chief of Simply Buckhead magazine, a luxury lifestyle print publication distributed throughout Atlanta.

My writing has appeared in dozens of publications, including the inflight magazines for Delta and Southwest airlines; the in-room magazines for Hilton, Omni, and Loews hotels; and major sites like,,, and Other clients include custom publishers, Fortune 500 companies, top-ranked universities, and national PR firms. And while I write about everything under the sun, lifestyle and travel topics are my specialty. I am also a sought-after editor, proofreader, and copy editor, contracted for work by everyone from individual authors to major corporations.
