About ME



I am a freelance writer, photographer, blogger, and mother of four beautiful kids.  I graduated from Cornell University and went on to pursue a Masters of Teaching at City University of Seattle.  Our family has lived in 6 states and we love to learn new things.  I write about topics related to travel, fitness, minimalism, stillness and finding joy in the little things.  I currently enjoy blogging about our family’s new adventures - we love learning new things! I hope you find inspiration for life's little joys at

My writing has appeared in publications such as Cincinnati Parent Print Magazine, Teacherswithapps,, InnovationExcellence, OpenCollegesAustralia, and the social media pages of travel sites of various museums and tourist sites.  Please feel free to connect if you feel our projects could be a match!
